Dragimir or Dragomir (Драгомир) was ruler of Travunia and Zachlumia, medieval Serbian principalities located in present-day regions of Herzegovina and south Dalmatia, from an unknown date before 1000 to 1018. The only preserved medieval source that mentions Dragimir is the dubious Chronicle of the Priest of Duklja, specifically its Chapters 34–37. Chapter 34 relates that "King" Chvalimir of the Belojević dynasty divided his domain among his sons, giving Zenta to his first-born Petrislav, Travunia and Zachlumia to Dragimir, and Podgoria to the youngest Miroslav. After Miroslav died without an heir, his land was taken over by Petrislav, who thus ruled all of Duklja. However this is contradictory to the earlier and more trusted De Administrando Imperio which states that Hvalimir's son was Čučimir, leaving up to question whether Dragimir was Hvalimir's grandson, or whether he existed at all. In 1009 or 1010, Bulgarian Emperor Samuel occupied Dragimir's lands, together with Duklja, Bosnia, and Raška. Dragimir retreated before the emperor's army on a mountain, but was soon invited by Samuel to come down and resume ruling Travunia and Zachlumia as his vassal. The emperor had previously made a similar arrangement in Duklja with Jovan Vladimir, son and successor of Petrislav. Vladimir was killed in 1016 by Samuel's son's successor Ivan Vladislav who was killed at the end of 1017.
