The Manchu people in Taiwan constitute a small minority of the population of Taiwan.

Migration history[edit]

The Manchu people living in Taiwan arrived primarily in two waves of migration. The first wave was during the Qing Dynasty period. During this period, the Manchu-led government annexed Taiwan into the Qing Empire.[1] The second wave was immediately following the Chinese Civil War, when the Kuomintang retreated to Taiwan. As of 2009, there are about 12,000 Manchu people living in Taiwan.[2]

Notable people[edit]

Manchu writing at the Taiwan Confucian Temple. Inscription on the dismounting stele reads: "Civil and military officials, soldiers and citizens, all dismount from their horses here"
