|Occupation||Chief military leader|
Djordje Zagla (last half of the 18th century and beginning of the 19th-century) was Serbian chief military leader in Smederevo during the First Serbian Uprising.
Djordje Zagla came from Blace in southern Serbiawhile others say that he came from Thrace. He arrived in Belgrade with his three brothers after the outbreak of Karađorđe's insurrection and immediately joined Karađorđe's troops.He soon became the chief military leader in Smederevo under the command of voivode Vujica Vulićević.
Marinko Paunović wrote about two young people who loved each other in a long-forgotten book entitled "Belgrade, the Eternal City", which was published back in 1967, on the occasion of the centenary of the Serbian Revolution.
Paunović found the romantic story among Branislav Nušić's notes, from the time when Nušić had yet to reach the reputation and popularity that he now possesses. The "Romeo and Juliet" type story revolves around a young couple -- Djordje Zagla and Julia Badža -- during the time of Karađorđe's Serbia.
Djordje Zagla is also the subject of ballads sung by guslars.
