Guillem/Guilhem Figueira/Figera (fl. 1230) was a Languedocian jongleur and troubadour from Toulouse active at the court of the Emperor Frederick II. In Italy he and Aimery de Pegulhan, a fellow exile, helped to found a troubadour tradition of lamentation for the "good old days" of pre-Crusade Languedoc. The singing of Figueira’s sirventes was outlawed by the Inquisition in Toulouse.
