ADHEMAR (ADEMAR, AIMAR, AELARZ) DE MONTEIL (d. 1098), one of the principal personages of the first crusade, was bishop of Puy en Velay from before 1087.

At the council of Clermont in 1095 he showed great zeal for the crusade, and having been named apostolic legate by the pope, he accompanied [Raymond IV]?, count of Toulouse?, to the east. He negotiated with Alexius Comnenus at Constantinople, re-established at Nicaea some discipline among the crusaders, caused the siege of Antioch? to be raised and died in that city of the plague on the 1st of August 1098.
