In 1699 the Ottomans were pushed south of the Danube River by Austrian Habsburg armies, but Serb lands to the south remained under Turkish rule.

The movement for Serbian independence began in the Sumadija, with uprisings under the Serbian patriots Karadjordje Petrovic (1804-13) and Milos Obrenovic (1815-17).
