Abstract

In 1804 a Serb uprising inside the empire erupted in reaction against the arbitrary rule of the Turkish governor of Belgrade. The rebels were aided by the Ottoman central government, which armed them to assist in bringing the Belgrade anarchists under government control. The Serb rebels were led by Djordje Petrović, a prosperous pig dealer whose large size and swarthy complexion earned him the nickname of Karadjordje (Black Djordje), and whose profession and former experience as a sometime bandit won him support among the Serbian middle and renegade classes.
