Adil Giray, Adil Khan Girai (Crimean Tatar: Adil Geray, عادل كراى‎) was khan of the Crimean Khanate from 1666 to 1671. He strongly supported the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, and was one of the candidates in the Polish royal election of 1669. In 1671 Giray was removed as khan by Mehmed IV, the Ottoman sultan, when the sultan decided to wage war with the Commonwealth.
