Warinus of Poitiers (also Warin, Guerin, Gerinus, Varinus; d. 677 AD) was the Franco-Burgundian Count of Poitiers and Count of Paris and later Saint Warinus, Martyr of the Franks. He was the son of Saint Sigrada of Sainte-Marie de Soissons and the brother of Saint Leodegarius. He was the father of Saint Leudwinus.

In 677 A.D., Warinus was stoned to death near Arras because of a feud between his brother Leodegarius and Ebroin, the Frankish Mayor of the Palace of Neustria.


Warinus was born in Autun, SaƓne-et-Loire, Burgundy. He was the son of Bodilon, a Count of Poitiers and Sigrada of Alsace, and Sainte-Marie de Soissons. He was the founder of the famous noble family of the Guideschi.

As a nobleman, Warinus spent his childhood at the court of Clotaire II.

He married Gunza von Treves, a Frankish noblewoman in France. His wife came from an influential Frankish family and was the sister of Saint Basinus of Treves. They had three children:

  • Doda of Poitiers (circa b. 659 A.D.- circa d. 678 A.D.)
  • Leudwinus, Count of Poitier (b. 660 A.D. - d. 722 A.D.)
  • Grimgert, Count of Paris (circa b.667 A.D.)
