The Gantimurovs[1] (Russian: Гантимуровы) is a Russian princely family descending from the Manchu chieftain Gantimur or Gantömör (Mongolian Gan:steel, tömör:iron).

The descendants of Gantimur were confirmed as princes by a royal decree in 1686. They established the village of Karymskoye in Dauria. Their heraldic emblem is contained in the 17th part of the Gerbovnik.

Prince Nikolai Gantimurov (1880–1924), a Russian officer, took part in the Siege of Port Arthur. Natalia Gantimurova (born 1991), Russian model, is the Miss Russia 2011 titleholder. Another Princess Gantimurov was a great grandmother of painter Wassily Kandinsky.
