Count Jerzy Józef Henryk Potocki (29 January 1889 – 10 September 1961) was a Polish nobleman, captain of the cavalry and diplomat. (Note that the Almanach błękitny gives his name as Jerzy Antoni Potocki)
His paternal grandparents were Count Alfred Józef Potocki, the Minister-President of Austria, and Princess Maria Klementyna Sanguszko. He was also a great-great-grandson of Jan Potocki. His maternal grandparents were Prince Antoni Wilhelm Radziwiłł and Marie de Castellane (the daughter of French aristocrats Henri de Castellane and Pauline de Talleyrand-Périgord). His paternal uncle, Count Józef Mikołaj Potocki, married his maternal aunt, Princess Helena Augusta Radziwiłł.
Since 1933 in the diplomatic service, he was appointed ambassador to Italy but refused to take the commission in protest against the Four-Power Pact. From 1933 to 1936 he was ambassador in Ankara and from 1936 to 1940 in Washington.
