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.[1] In 1671 Giray was removed as khan by Mehmed IV, the Ottoman sultan, when the sultan decided to wage war with the Commonwealth.[2]
