In parallel especially with the developments in the West, the Ottoman Empire got into a downturn in terms of politics, military and economy in the XIX. century. During this process when the central authority was shattered, the revolt of the Egyptian governor Mehmet Ali Paşa of Kavala became a milestone in the Ottoman history. This condition also became effective upon the West to increase their interferences against the Ottoman. Mehmet Ali Paşa of Kavala was a strong personality, who made various reforms and performed political activities during the process when he carried out his duty in Egypt. Indeed, the Ottoman Empire which could not quash the Rum revolt that broke out in 1821 was able to quash it with his assistance. However, Mehmet Ali Paşa demanded a number of things from the empire after these achievements and when the promised demands were not fulfilled, he revolted. This incident became an international matter, which also involved Europe and Russia within a short time. It is observed that there were some problems and rigors in the country during the period when the Ottoman Empire dealt with the revolt of Mehmet Ali Paşa. While the Ottoman Empire was dealing with the Matter of Egypt, a revolt broke out in the Central Anatolia. The ringleader of this qualm was a man named Kıran Mehmet. He revolted against the empire with some of his supporters. He became effective in the region by causing a qualm in the Central Anatolia between 1826-1833. Kadı Kıran Mehmet, who took advantage of the empire’s authority weakness especially during the Matter of Egypt, rebelled in order to perform more pillage with his supporters. Kadı Kıran Mehmet and his supporters were arrested and the qualm was defused as a result of the eager chase of the empire in 1833.
