Hadži-Prodan's Revolt (Serbian: Хаџи-Проданова буна/Hadži-Prodanova buna) was an interphase between the First Serbian Uprising and Second Serbian Uprising of the Serbian Revolution against the Ottoman Empire. Despite the collapse of the First Uprising in 1813, the tensions in the Pashaluk of Belgrade nevertheless persisted. In mid–September 1814 a revolt 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 revolt soon failed and he fled to Austria. After the failure of the revolt, the Ottomans inflicted more persecution against the Serbs, such as high taxation and forced labour. In March 1815, Serbs had several meetings and decided upon a new revolt, the Second Serbian Uprising.
