The Conquest of Manila (1405) was a conquest of Luzon island, including Manila, by admiral Zheng He which according to Jesuit Father Gaubil as stated in his in "Lettres edifiantes", had sent Thirty Thousand Chinese soldiers in various times to secure sovereignty over Manila. In relation to this, according to Otley Beyer, the Yongle Emperor appointed a Chinese governor named Ko Ch'a-lao to Luzon in order to oversee affairs there. Modern Newspapers echo this notion that the Chinese had sent troops to the Philippines in the past  and a historian by the name of Paul Kekai Manansala also re-affirm that historical Chinese conquest of Luzon.

"Some of the older Spanish authors also entertained the view that the Philippines were once subject to Chinese rule; and Father Gaubil relates in the Lettres edifiantes that Yung-lo maintained a fleet with thirty thousand men, which sailed to Manila at various times. It was in I571 that the Spaniards and Chinese met for the first time at Mindoro, before Legazpi, the conqueror of the Philippines, undertook his expedition to Manila. That there was a colony of Chinese on Luzon before the arrival of the Spaniards, there can be no doubt, as it is clearly stated also in the "Ming shih" (chap. 323, p. II b)
