Battle for the country (1804–33)

The period between 1804 and 1815 is marked by two major uprisings in Serbia and the beginning of the Serb’s fight for liberation from Turkish occupation, and abolition of feudalism. The leader of the first Serbian uprising was Đorđe Petrović, progenitor of the Karađorđević Dynasty, while the leader of the second Serbian uprising was Miloš Obrenović.
