|Title||Župan of West Morava|
Stracimir Zavidović (Serbian: Страцимир Завидовић) was a 12th-century Serbian prince (Župan) of West Morava, an administrative division (appanage) of the Medieval Serbian Principality, from 1163–1166.
Stracimir was given the oblasts of West Morava (a province of Rascia region) to rule as a Župan (prince, the second highest title) following Byzantium's division of the Serb lands by Manuel I. His brothers were given česti (parts): Miroslav ruled Zahumlje and Travunia, Stefan Nemanja was given Toplica, Ibar, Rasina, and Reke, while the first-born, Tihomir, was given supreme rule of the principality.
In 1166 Stefan Nemanja overthrew Tihomir in a coup and had him and his brothers, Stracimir and Miroslav, expelled to Byzantium in 1167/1168. Stefan Nemanja defeated Tihomir and his Byzantine army. Tihomir drowned in a river and the other brothers were stripped of their titles, with Nemanja becoming ruler of All Serbia. He pardoned his brothers and Stracimir continued to rule his lands. When Stefan Nemanja besieged and retook control of Duklja in the 1180s, Stracimir and Miroslav attacked the forces of Doclean ruler and kinsman Mihailo.
