Todor Vojinović (1760-1813) was a Serbian voivode during the First Serbian Uprising. He was killed during the Turkish occupation of Karađorđe's Serbia in 1813.[1] Todor Vojinović was around 1760 in Gornji Dobrić, a village in today's municipality of Loznica in western Serbia's Mačva district, but then part of Jadar nahija. He was a veteran fighter, a Boluk-bashi (an Ottoman officer rank equivalent to captain) of the Serbian Free Corps that fought the Ottomans during Koča Anđelković frontier rebellion and the Austro-Turkish War (1787-1791). The Serbian Corps liberated a part of the Sanjak of Smederevo, which became part of Habsburg-occupied Serbia (1788–1792). In 1804, Đorđe Ćurčija took Jadar and Rača from the Tuks and named Vojinović Boluk-bashi of the right bank of the Jadar region. From then on, Vojinović remained the only senior military commander at Jadar until Anta Bogićević.[2]elevated him to the rank of Voivode. When Karađorđe's insurrection failed, Vojinović was captured by the Turkish occupying forces and was summarily hanged in 1813. [3]
