Sorry that “we don’t know for sure, but rumors say this” is the answer to so many of these history questions. That’s what happens when you can’t write down your history and have to rely on oral tradition for centuries. Most of the “legend has it” stories have some sort of truth in them, but a lot of actual history can get twisted through the years.
