Summary/Abstract: From the treaty of Berlin to the Serbian Revolution of 1903 the rulers of Serbia and their governments were under the domination of Austria-Hungary, even though in the last years of his life King Alexander Obrenović had proved difficult to manage. The cabinet of Vienna evidently did not expect the change of dynasty to affect this situation, for the Emperor Francis Joseph was the first monarch to recognize Peter Karageorgević as King of Serbia; the Austrian government was apparently confident that the commercial treaty of 1893 would continue to provide the means for keeping Serbia in subjection.
