This essay examines how Zhu Yuanzhang's legal philosophy was perceived and interpreted in the early Ming official history of the Ming founder, the Taizu shilu (Veritable records of Taizu), and in some relevant historical works of later times. By looking at the viewpoints expressed on Zhu's words and deeds, the essay demonstrates that his legal philosophy was carefully constructed in the official history, and that this work of historical construction represented an official effort to redefine Chinese cultural identity. Cet article s'intéresse à la façon dont la philosophie juridique de Zhu Yuanzhang est perçue et interprétée dans l'histoire officielle du fondateur des Ming, le Taizu shilu (Chroniques véridiques de Taizu), au début des Ming, ainsi que dans certains ouvrages historiques plus tardifs. L'examen des points de vue exprimés sur les paroles et les actes de Zhu montre que sa philosophie juridique a été soigneusement reconstruite dans l'histoire officielle, et que ce travail de reconstruction était représentatif d'un effort officiel pour redéfinir l'identité culturelle chinoise.
