In 1758, internal crisis and struggles in the Serbian Patriarchate of Peć resulted in deposition of Serbian Patriarch Gavrilo IV, and soon after that another ethnic Greek — metropolitan Cyril (Greek: Κύριλλος), was appointed at his place, becoming Serbian Patriarch "Kirilo II". New patriarch had to face many difficulties, since the Serbian Patriarchate of Peć was in great debt, and he also faced some internal opposition among Serbian clergy. One of Serbian metropolitans, Vasilije Jovanović-Brkić of Dabar and Bosnia managed to depose and succeed patriarch Kirilo II in 1763, becoming new Serbian patriarch as Vasilije I.
