Hadži-Prodan's rebellion (Serbian: Хаџи-Проданова буна/Hadži-Prodanova buna) was an interphase between the First Serbian Uprising (1804–13) and the Second Serbian Uprising (1815–17) of the Serbian Revolution against the Ottoman Empire. Despite the collapse of the First Uprising in 1813, the tensions in the Sanjak of Smederevo ("Belgrade Pashaluk") nevertheless persisted. In mid–September 1814 a rebellion was launched by veteran Hadži-Prodan (1760–1825) in the Požega nahija. He knew the Ottomans would arrest him, so he thought it would be the best to resist them; Miloš Obrenović, another veteran, felt the time was not right for an uprising and did not provide assistance. The rebellion soon failed and Hadži-Prodan fled to Austria. After the failure of the revolt, the Ottomans inflicted more persecution against the Serbs, including higher taxation and forced labour. In March 1815, Serbs had several meetings and decided upon a new rebellion, the Second Serbian Uprising.
