The surname Azemar is of local derivation; that is, it is derived from the name of the place where the original bearer lived or held land. In this case, it is derived from the name of the lands of Adhemar, in the medieval French province of Provence. Provence is located on the Mediterranean coast of France, between the Rhône River and the Italian border. The capital towns of the region were Aix and Narbonne. It experienced its first development of Christianity in the 3rd century. The Franks invaded in the 5th century. Provence was occupied by the Ligures in the 7th century BC and later colonized by Greek traders. The Merovingians and the Carolingians enlarged their shares of the territory and reunited Provence. Provence maintained its independence into the 10th century but it later passed to the Catalonian dynasty. In the 11th century Provence was in a state of disorganization, with real power in the hands of the local counts.
