Rainer ( Latin Raynerius , Italian Ranieri , * 1084 , † around 1136) was Margrave of Montferrat from the noble family of the Aleramides .

He was the son of Margrave Wilhelm IV and his wife Otta d ' Agliè , daughter of Tibaldo d'Aglie. Presumably when his father died around 1100 he inherited his margraviate.
