Gjergj, Lord of Durrës

Gjergj Thopia (died 1392) was the Lord of Dyrrhachium from 1387 to 1392. He was the son of Karlo Thopia and Vojisava Balšić. Gjergj married Teodora Branković of the Serbian Branković family.

Gjergj surrendered Dyrrhachium to the Venetians in 1392. Later that year, he died without issue. His sister, Elena, gained the bulk of his holdings. A smaller portion was left for his younger sister, Vojsava.
