31 MARCH INCIDENT
The 31 March Incident (Turkish: 31 Mart Vakasý) was a 1909 rebellion of reactionaries in Ýstanbul toward the Countercoup (1909), who attempted to put an end to the nascent Second Constitutional Era in the Ottoman Empire and to the newly-established influence of the Committee of Union and Progress, in order to re-affirm the position of the Sultan Abdulhamid II as absolute monarch. The incidents actually started not on 31 March 1909 despite its name, but on 13 April 1909, that day corresponding to 31 March in the Julian calendar in use at the time in Turkey.
