Stefan Uroš II Milutin (Serbian Cyrillic: Стефан Урош II Милутин) (c. 1253 – October 29, 1321) was a king of Serbia (reigned 1282–1321), and member of the House of Nemanjić.

He captured Durres in 1296. The Battle of Gallipoli (1312) was fought by the Serbian troops sent by Stefan Uroš II Milutin to aid the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos in the defense of his lands against the Ottoman Turks. After numerous attempts in subduing the Turks, the rapidly crumbling Byzantine Empire was forced to enlist the help of Serbia. The Turks were looting and pillaging the countryside and the two armies converged at the Gallipoli peninsula where the Ottomans were decisively defeated. Out of the gratitude to Serbia, the town of Kucovo was donated to the Serbs. He is also known for defeating the Mongols in 1293 that raided into Serbia.
