Margaret, Lady of Lisarea was lady of the fief of Lisarea in the Principality of Achaea, around 1276.

Her identity is obscure, as very little is known about her. The 19th-century German medievalist Karl Hopf proposed a reconstructed genealogy, whereby she was the daughter of Guibert of Cors and Margaret of Nully, along with a hypothetical brother, William. Hopf further proposed that she married first Payen of Stenay, who is attested as selling a part of the Cors lands in 1280, and then, in 1287–89, as her second husband, Geoffrey II of Briel.[1]

The French scholar Antoine Bon, however, rejected Hopf's hypothesis, pointing out that many assumptions rested on pure conjecture: the only certain facts, according to Bon, are that in 1276, Margaret held the fief of Lisarea, that she was a cousin of Walter of Rosières, and that she married Geoffrey II, with whom she had a daughter.[1]
