Andō Morinari (安藤 守就, 1503 – June 27, 1582), also known as Andō Michitari (安藤 道足) was renowned for being part of the "Mino Triumvirate" (西美濃三人衆 Nishi Mino Sanninshū) (along with Inaba Ittetsu and Ujiie Bokuzen) under the Saitō clan during the Sengoku period of Feudal Japan. He served as a head retainer under Saitō Dōsan after Dōsan overthrew Toki Yorinari (the original ruler of Mino) and became daimyō of Mino Province. He joined the Oda clan following the death of Saitō Yoshitatsu in 1561 and fought at the Siege of Inabayama Castle (1652), the Battle of Anegawa (1570) and in the battles for the Ishiyama Honganji. He was dismissed from Nobunaga's service following the fall of the Honganji in 1580 and evidently died as a ronin.
