Manchu...
"The total population of Manchuria (now the Heilungkiang,
Kirin, and Liaoning provinces of China) is estimated at more
than 50 million, of which the Manchu constitute only about 5
per cent, and the Manchu language is spoken by less than
200,000.   The Manchu people are known to have been in this
area as early as the first millennium B.C.   Although originally
nomadic tribes, they were strong enough in the 12th century to
begin the raids on north China for which they became famous.   In
fact, during the 17th century the Manchu conquered China and

established the Ch’ing Dynasty (1644-1912).   These Manchu,
however, already spoke a form of Chinese that was common to
the court officials, or mandarins, and was known as Mandarin
Chinese.   (See Chinese: Kuoyü.)

Manchu is a language of the Altaic family, usually included in the
Tunguzic group.   These languages, spoken by small groups in
Siberian Russia, include Evenki, or Tungus, Birar, Manegir,
Solon, and Lamut (northern group) and Manchu, Glode, and
Oroch, or Ude (southern group).   The Tunguzic tongues are
spoken by not more than 300,000 people in all.   The Manchu
alphabet, written vertically, left to right, was developed from
Mongolian writing, with diacritical marks devised in 1632 to
adapt the writing to Manchu.   According to tradition, several
variant forms of the character were used until an 18th century
Chinese scholar prepared the squared letters now in use."
