Kumanovo's first mention of single contemporary towns dates back to the fourteenth cenury. Memorial tablet in Skopje devoted to the rebellion of Karposh. Karposh, a robber commandant in the Dospat area ( present-day Bulgaria) who acted as Ottoman-Christian commandant of troops in 1689, used the Ottoman weakness and dissatisfaction with the higher Ottoman tax policy to organize a rebellion while Austria stage an assault on the Ottomans.
Karposh's rebellion quickly expanded, leading to the deliverance of Kratovo, Kriva Palanka, Kumanovo, Ka?anik and other cities. Together with the Emperor Leopold I's Austria troops, the locals struggled for the freedom of Skopje and ?tip. Austrians were compelled to retreat, and the fortified Ottomans assaulted the insurgents, took Kriva Palanka, the insurgent fort, and then assaulted Kumanovo and his rebuilt fort, where they took Karposh and killed him on the Stone Bridge over the Vardar.
