Adarnase II, sometimes known as Adarnase I, () was a Georgian Bagratid prince and a co-ruler of Tao-Klarjeti with his brothers — Bagrat I Kuropalates and Guaram Mampali — with the title of eristavt-eristavi ("duke of dukes") (830-c.870).

Adarnase was the oldest son of the Georgian presiding prince Ashot I and inherited all the lands west to the Arsiani Range with the exception of Shavsheti and Lower Tao (now in Turkey).Suny, Ronald Grigor (1994), The Making of the Georgian Nation, p. 30. Indiana University Press, ISBN 0-253-20915-3

Adarnase was married to "Bevreli", a daughter of the Abasgian king Bagrat I. At some point, she was forced by Adarnase into retirement to a monastery where she lived and died as Anastasia. After Adarnase's death c. 870, his possessions were equally divided among his sons: Gurgen obtained Tao, while Sumbat received Klarjeti. Adarnase's second son, Ashot known by his moniker Kekela ("the Fair"), died in 867. This must have occurred in Adarnase's lifetime as Ashot is not listed among his heirs.Toumanoff, Cyril (1967).
