Saint Leobinus (French: Lubin) (died 556) was a hermit, abbot, and bishop. The son of a peasant family, he became a hermit and a monk of Micy Abbey before being ordained a priest. He was then elected abbot of Brou and then around 544, became Bishop of Chartres, succeeding Etherius with the consent of Childebert I.
