The Turks and Crimean Tatars attacked first against Sheremetev, who then retreated to the other side to join Peter the Great. Negotiations started on 21 July and the Treaty of the Prut was signed on 23 July After this treaty, Dimitrie Cantemir had to go in exile at Moscow.
This treaty means the end of local dynasties of kings and inauguration of Greek rulers from the Fanar Qunarter of Istanbul Phanariotes. A bit more than a century later, in , the Greek Nationalist leader Alexander Ypsilantis crossed the Prut river at Sculeni , with the intention of touching off a rebellion in the Danubian Principalities.
Though the Wallachian uprising ultimately failed - due especially to irreconcilable differences between Ypsilantis and his Wallachian ally Tudor Vladimirescu - it did touch off the Greek War of Independence , leading to the Kingdom of Greece gaining independence ten years later. In the Principalities it led to the end of the aforementioned Greek Phanariote rule, and indirectly to increasing self-government and eventually to the independence of Romania several decades later.
In Greek history, Ypsilantis' crossing of the Prut is an important historical event, commemorated in a famous painting displayed at Athens. Within that Prut Valley a cabin rests close In which lives a lassie—a beautiful rose: Her eyes like the bright stars that lighten the sky; When you see them, laddie, you'll pause with a sigh.

Ottoman Empire. The Treaty, reconfirmed in through the Treaty of Adrianople , stipulated the return of Azov to the Ottomans; Taganrog and several Russian fortresses were to be demolished; and the Tsar pledged to stop interfering in the affairs of the Polish—Lithuanian Commonwealth. Although Peter acquiesced to all demands, he refused to fulfill the latter, under the pretext that Cantemir had fled his camp.
