Due to the substantial loss of both, inner and outer importance and power from which the Otoman Empire had suffered especially at the begenning of the 17th century, massive social, economical and military disorders, together with the territorial problems began to occur. In spite of the precautions taken in to improve the political, economical, social and military poor stuation, facts as long term wars and minor defeats along the borderline had started the long period of the public disorder, especially in Anatolia. Specifically the ?levents', normally serving for the Empire then dismissed from their duties, together with their allies of all sorts used to play the crucial role in the acts of banditry and rebellions which took place at the beginning of the 19th century in Anatolia, by tyrannizing the inhabited rural areas as long as the areas hardly dwelt by semi nomadic tribes. In this context the massive importance of rebellions and banditry acts, taking place at the begening of the 19th century in Cankiri- the center of one of the sanjak of the Anatolian Province becomes explicit. In the following article some of these acts of violence are analyzed basing upon the relevant documents of the times.
