About Doda de Poitiers
Warinus of Poitiers (Warin, Guerin, Gerinus, Varinus) (d. 677) was the Franco-Burgundian Count of Poitiers and Count of Paris who became 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 also the father of Saint Leudwinus.
In 677 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.
He married Gunza von Treves, a Frankish noblewoman in France. His wife came from an influential Frankish family. She was the sister of Saint Basinus of Treves. They had three children:
- Doda of Poitiers (circa b. 659 - circa d. 678)
- Leudwinus, Count of Poitier (b. 660 - d. 722)
- Grimgert, Count of Paris (circa b.667)
