George of Bytom (Polish: Jerzy bytomski; b. 1300 - d. by 1327), was a Duke of Bytom since 1316 until his death (as co-ruler of his brother).

He was the fourth son of Duke Casimir of Bytom by his wife Helena.

Life[edit]

There is little information about George's life. After his father's death in 1312, he remain at the side of his elder brother Władysław, formally as his co-ruler. On 19 February 1327 in Opawa, George and his brothers Władysław and Siemowit paid homage to the Bohemian King John of Luxembourg. This is the last message about George as a living person; probably he died shortly after that date. He never married or had children, and the place of his burial is unknown.
