Koča's frontier rebellion (Kočina Krajina revolt) was an uprising of Serbs against the Ottoman Empire from February 1788 - September 7, 1788. Koča Andjelković (1755 - 1789)[1] was the leader of the uprising which was aided by the Habsburg Empire. It enabled the Habsburgs to conquer central parts of present-day Serbia from the Ottomans, attaching the territory of the Pashaluk of Belgrade to other Serb-populated areas of their Empire. The crownland of (third) Habsburg Serbia existed for 3 years.[2]

By 1791 however the Austrians were forced into withdrawal across the Danube and Sava rivers, joined by thousands of Serbian families who feared Ottoman revenge for supporting the Habsburgs.[3] The uprising also involved the hero of the Serbian revolution Karađorđe Petrović, who served in the Austrian army at the time.[4] Retaliation of the Ottomans in the outset of the uprising influenced the Serb determination to emancipate from the Ottomans 15 years later, during the Serbian revolution.
