The Spring and Autumn Annals of the Ten Kingdoms, also known by its Chinese title Shiguo Chunqiu (Chinese: 十國春秋), is a history of the Ten Kingdoms that existed in southern China after the fall of the Tang Dynasty and before the reunification of China by the Song Dynasty. The book was written and compiled by the Qing Dynasty scholar Wu Renchen (c. 1628 – c. 1689). Wu took part in the compilation of Mingshi, the official history of the Ming Dynasty, and felt that the official dynastic histories have neglected the Ten Kingdoms. The book contains 114 volumes (scrolls).[1]

  1. 14 volumes - Wu (907–937)
