The entry of the Manchus in the Chinese Empire introduced a new subject matter into the works about China that had been circulating in Europe until that time. In the second half of the XVII century, the Jesuits inundated the European scene with different publications centred on this historical event. In Spain, there were also texts that covered the changes in the Chinese dynasty right from the start. Specifically, information about the fall of the Ming dynasty basically came from three sources: the text by Bishop Juan de Palafox y Mendoza, Historia de la conquista de China por el Tártaro (1670, posthumous edition); the Hechos de la Orden de Predicadores en el Imperio de China (1667), by the Dominican Victorio Riccio, and the news collected by another Dominican, Fernández de Navarrete, in his Tratados históricos, políticos, éticos y religiosos de la monarquía de China (1676). The objective of this essay is to present these three authors and their works, analysing the information that they offer about the entry of the Manchus in China and the relation between them.
