George de Athequa was a Bishop of Llandaff in the early days of the Reformation. A Spaniard by birth, he was chaplain to Queen Catharine of Aragon, with whom he left Spain for England. He died in March 1537.

He alienated property from the see of Llandaff, notably the bishop's manor at Nash. He is thought to be one of the sources for the Spanish Chronicle.
