George Thopia (Albanian: Gjergj Topia, Serbian: Ђорђе Топија, Italian: Giorgio Topia, fl. 1388–d. 1392) was the Lord of Durazzo (Durrës) from 1388 to 1392. He was the son of Karl Topia and Vojislava Balšić.[citation needed] George married Voislava (Teodora), the daughter of sevastokrator Branko Mladenović, of the Serbian Branković family.[1]

George was required to return Durazzo to the Republic of Venice in 1392.[2] Later that year, he died without issue.[citation needed] His sister, Elena, gained the bulk of the rest of his holdings, whilst a smaller portion was left to his younger sister, Vojsava.[citation needed]
