The First Serbian Uprising is a misleading term, because (1) there had been many Serbian uprisings against the Turks before 1804; and (2) what happened between 1804 and 1813 may have begun as an “uprising” but soon evolved into a revolutionary war of national liberation, of social and political emancipation of the Serbian nation.
The causes of the uprising are to be found in the crisis of the Ottoman state and society, apparent throughout the 18th century and increasingly acute in the first years of the 19th.
The uprising was probably inevitable, in view of the dahis’ crude and wanton shattering of the Pashaluk’s social and economic structure.
