The Great Rebellion of 1817–1818, also known as the 1818 Uva-Wellassa Uprising (after the two places it had started), or simply the Uva Rebellion, was the third Kandyan War with the British, in what is now Sri Lanka. It took place in what is now Uva, which was then a province of the Kingdom of Kandy, against the British colonial government under Governor Robert Brownrigg, which had been controlling the formerly independent Udarata (Up-Country in Sinhalese).<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>
