Serbian revolution


This chapter is dedicated to the first revolution on the Balkans and the first in Europe following the French bourgeois revolution. In historiography it is divided into small periods of time: the First Uprising (1804-1813), Haji Prodan’s Rebellion (1814), the Second Uprising (1815) and the first reign of Prince Milos. Karadjordje, Milos, Vuk and their activities are the products and symbol of Serbian revolution. They are protagonists of its three movements: Karadjordje – national liberation, Milos – social state and Vuk – cultural renaissance.

The main outcome of the Serbian Uprising was achieving national (in 1883) and social (in 1835) freedom. Serbian peasant from that moment enjoyed his land ownership rights, freed of feudal obligations. This was important for introduction of cultural renaissance.
