As did his brothers, Jevrem adopted the additional surname of his step-father, Obrenović. During his participation in the political life of Serbia between 1816 and 1842, Jevrem was one of the most significant and interesting figures of the political and cultural scene of Serbia. He was an active member of the Serbian independence movement and in 1815, he was imprisoned in the Kalemegdan Fort after the Second Serbian Uprising. After his release, he moved to Sabac in 1816 to commence his rule there. He built homes in Sabac and Belgrade, and these cities became the centres of culture attracting both writers and artists. He became a renown patron of the arts in Serbia. In 1842, his political career ended after his role as governor of Belgrade. His relationship with his brother Prince Milos deteriorated in 1837 after his objection to the marriage of Jevrem's daughter Anka to the Austrian consul Antun Mihanović. Jevrem resigned his posts and left Serbia with his family. After returning by the and of that year, he formed a political group opposing the nature of his brother's rule in an attempt to foster change. After the proclamation of the Constitution in 1839, Jevrem was appointed president of the State Council. Opposing this, Prince Milosh abdicated. He was regent for Milos during his trip to Constantinople, and again when Milos abdicated but Milan was too sick to rule and with Mihailo was yet to return to Serbia to assume the throne. He was exiled from Serbia during the Vucić rebellion in 1842.
