Georg Christian, Prince of Lobkowicz (Czech: Jiří Kristián z Lobkovic) (May 14, 1835 - December 22, 1908) was a member of the old Bohemian aristocratic family of Lobkowicz and an influential politician of late 19th century Bohemia and Austria-Hungary. He was a Prince (Fürst) of Lobkowicz.

Born in Vienna as a son of August, Prince of Lobkowicz, and his wife Sidonia, née Countess Kinsky, he was one of the political leaders of the conservative Bohemian nobility. He was a member of the Bohemian Diet from 1865 - 1872 and 1883 - 1907 (presiding over it from 1871 - 1872 and 1883 - 1907 as Land Marshal of Bohemia). He served as deputy in the Abgeordnetenhaus of the Austrian Parliament (Reichsrat) in 1879 - 1883 and became a hereditary member of the Herrenhaus in 1883. In 1871, he was involved in negotiations concerning the relationship between Bohemia and Austria.

He married Princess Anna Maria von und zu Liechtenstein, of the House of Liechtenstein, in Vienna on May 22, 1864, by whom he had 12 children. He died in Prague.[1]
