Irena Martial [French: Iréna Martial] (née Meri [French: Méri]; born 28 June 1909) is a French supercentenarian from the overseas department of Guadeloupe whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG). She may be the oldest known living person in Guadeloupe.


Martial was born in Guadeloupe, France, on 28 June 1909. She married Eloi Martial, with whom she had 10 children, six of whom are still alive. In December 2015, with other centenarians of the commune of Le Gosier (including her sister Leone Beziat), she was given a Christmas basket.

Her sister Leone Beziat [French: Léone Béziat] (born 2 May 1911) is still alive at the age of 110 years, 42 days, potentially making them the oldest living siblings in the world.

Following the death of Marthe Roch on 21 September 2020, Martial became the oldest known living person in Guadeloupe. She presently lives in Grande Ravine, Le Gosier, Guadeloupe, France.
