Pernette Du Guillet (Lyon, c. 1520 - July 7, 1545) was a female French poet of the Renaissance. She was born in a noble family and married in 1537 or 1538 a man with the last name Du Guillet. In the spring of 1536, she met the poet Maurice Scève (she was 16; he was 35), and she would serve as Scève's poetic muse, inspiring his Délie. From this work has come the reputation of her beauty and significant culture. After her death, her poetry was published in Rymes de Gentille et Vertueuse Dame, Pernette du Guillet.
