After Serbian-Turkish relations deteriorated following the grievous incident at the Čukur Fountain in Dorćol in 1862, Prince Mihailo Obrenović went for a visit to Constantinople followed by Serbian delegation. There he was successful in obtaining a ferman (written imperial command, charter) from sultan Abdul-Azizon hand over to Serbian rule the towns of Belgrade, Smederevo, Šabac and Kladovo. The imperial ferman was solemnly proclaimed in the Kalemegdan Fortress and the Belgrade military commander (muhazif) Ali Riza Pasha symbolically handed over the keys of the town to Prince Mihailo.
