Toša Djordjević (c. 1790-1850) was well-known for his bravery in the First Serbian Uprising. He was the right-hand-man of Hajduk Veljko Petrović during the liberation of the Gurgusovačkog kraja, today's Knjaževac district. After the liberation, Toša was elevated to the rank of voivode of the district.  Years later, Toša Djordjević fell in disfavour when the Miloš government removed him as the Captain of Zaglavlje after the suppression of a rebellion in a Bulgarian town of Belogradchik rebellion (1836) in 1836. Miloš did this as a diplomatic move to appease the Sublime Porte and remove all existing rumours of troubles brewing at the borders of Serbia and Bulgaria.
Toša Djordjević died in 1850 in Knjaževac.
