Passarowitz (now Požarevac), village in Yugoslavia, south of Belgrade. On July 21, 1718 a peace treaty was concluded between Karl VI and Venetia on the one hand and between Karl VI and Sultan Ahmed III on the other hand. Under this treaty the Ottoman Empire had to cede to Austria the Banat of Temesvár, Little Walachia (in what is Romania today), and northern Serbia with Belgrade and parts of Bosnia. In 1739 Austria lost these territories again, except for the Banat. Venetia was forced to surrender the Peloponnese peninsula, which it had conquered in 1715.
