I love this. Imagine writing a book chronicling everything a person did and said who lived over 100 years ago, just using word of mouth.

Doesn't surprise me. Rumors becomes legends becomes myths. Those myths get mixed up with local myths as they spread, more legends and stories get folded in based on the local political situation... and when enough people have been told these tales for generations, somebody writes them down. By that time these myths are TRUE, just like in advertising and politics - if you say something enough times, it becomes true.
i wish this had cited sources.
Reminds me of the fossil record.
