In the 19th century, the Ottoman Empire enacted several changes in its legal and political system due to its desire to overcome its internal problems and due to the expansion of its relations with the West. The first change was the declaration of the “Edict of Reorganization” (“Tanzimat Fermanı”). Following this edict, which regulated the relationship between the state and the public, the “Edict of Reform” (“Islahat Fermanı”) and the “Constitutional Era” (“Meşrutiyet”) were proclaimed. Armenians, who lived under the Ottoman Empire in Anatolia, took the case of the Balkan peoples as an example to be emulated, whom had gained their independence by revolting against the empire. Under the effect of this example, Armenians tried to get support from the foreign states in order to first gain autonomy, and then to establish an independent Armenian state. In the meantime, they organized several internal insurrections. For these insurrections to work, Armenians needed to make psychological and organizational preparation and acquire weapons.
