      That was what I meant, actually. I didn't think any of the warlords were
      involved in it's writing. I was wondering if there was any data on where the
      thing originated. Perhaps I should have said "folkloric roots" rather than
      history. Whatever.

      Not really. It's probably about as historical as Abe Lincoln's writing his
      lessons in chalk on a coal shovel, Washington chopping the cherry tree down,
      or Robert the Bruce being inspired by a *spider*. A good story, tells us a
      bit about the character of the person it's told about, *could* have
      happened... but 99.9% likely that it didn't. <G>
