Sanila (?800–834) was a Gothic magnate, lieutenant of the count Gaucelm of Rosselló, Empúries, Conflent and Rasez. What is known of his life is linked to Gaucelm. Sanila was his staunch lieutenant.[citation needed] The most notable surviving recorded incident about him was in 820, when Sanila beat the count Berà in a judicial duel (see Berà), which resulted in Berà losing his lands and being exiled,[1][2] although Gaucelm did not immediately gain power over his estates as planned.[citation needed]

Gaucelm and Sanila defended Chalon-sur-Saône against the assault of Lothar in 834. The city was taken and Gaucelm and Sanila were captured and executed.[citation needed]
