Daniel Duque-Estrada (Bento Gonçalves, Brazil, 4 October 1998) is a Brazilian-born Marienbourgish political scientist and commentator who acts as a consultant and columnist for Daily Duchy, Marienbourg's state newspaper.

A graduate of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul, Daniel works in the social studies program at the same university in Porto Alegre. In June 2023 he became a Marienbourgish citizen. A critic of the government program of the Popular Party, at the end of July he joined the Democratic Union party at the invitation of Gabriel Torres, whom he knew prior. He was a candidate for Ducal Diet membership for Blauberga in the August 8 election, but did not get enough votes to be elected. However, he was commissioned by the Press and Propaganda Secretariat of the Ministry of Social Affairs as a consultant to the Daily Duchy newspaper and was allowed to keep a regular column at the newspaper.

Daniel is an outspoken social liberal and advocates greater decentralization, representativeness policies, welfare and territorial expansion. Since becoming a citizen of Marienbourg, Daniel has become a strong objector of Fernando Toledo, leader of the so-called "conservative faction" of the Popular Party.
