Saint Symeon was a 12th-century king of Serbia. He put a lot of effort into political and spiritual unification of Serbia. He built and maintained many monasteries and churches. He was the father of Saint Sava of Serbia and Saint Stefan the First-Crowned, and an ancestor of many Serbian saints. After he abdicated his throne, St Symeon went to Mount Athos where he founded Hilandar Monastery together with his son, St Sava.
