Saint Annemund, also known as Annemundus, Aunemundus and Chamond, was Archbishop of Lyon. His father, Sigon, was a prefect in Lyon, while his brother, Dalfin, was Count of Lyons.[1]

Annemund was a councillor of Clovis II and a friend of Wilfrid.[2] He died in 658. According to Bede (Historia ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum v.19), this occurred at the order of Queen Balthild.

Annemund's feast day is September 28. The French commune of Saint-Chamond, Loire, is named after him.
