In the course of the 17th century Tripolitan pashas inclined towards autonomy. One of the ways of accomplishing it was by signing peace agreements with other countries without sultan’s consent. In the 18th century the Karamanlija family came to rule as successors in the Tripoli province. During the rule of Ahmed-pasha Karamanlija in the 4 os of the 18th century, the Tripolitan pirates seized two Dubrovnik ships and attacked another one claiming it did not have a ferman for free passage. The Tripolitan pasha refused to let the ships sail, since Dubrovnik had no peace agreement with Tripoli and was considered hostile. Finally the ships and the crews set to sea and to prove his good will, Ahmed’s successor also freed two Austrian subjects captured aboard one of the ships, expecting to be officially recognized by the Tripoli sultan. After this incident and with intent to protect their sea-trade, Dubrovnik authorities brought a regulation which obliged every Dubrovnik seaman to have a ferman for free passage excluding the Adriatic. They also agreed to appoint a consul in Tripoli and to the advice of the Dutch consul in Tripoli, F. Gebrans, they appointed a »governor of the Dubrovnik Consulate« instead of a consul to avoid higher expenses and the peace agreement with the pasha’s Tripoli province. The duties of this governor were performed by the Dutch consul at Tripoli, the very F. Gebrans who had proved himself a friend to the Dubrovnik Republic.
