Context

The Peace of Passarowitz is signed in modern-day Serbia through British mediation. Between the Ottoman Empire on one side, and the Austrian Habsburgs and Venice on the other, it allowed the Empire to retain its Hungarian territories, as well as Belgrade, part of Serbia and the Banat of Temesvar. Turkey gained the Morea from Venice, but Venice retained Corfu and its conquests in Albania and Dalmatia. The countries concerned agreed to abide by this agreement for at least 25 years.
