It is not impossible that the military conquests ascribed to him were more the efforts of another man known to the Portuguese as 'Tagaril' and 'Falatehan' (perhaps Fadhillah Khan or Fatahillah), who may be confused with Gunungjati in some legends. A manuscript called Purwaka Caruban Nagari has been found in Cirebon which distinguishes between Gunungjati and Fadhillah; it was supposedly written in 1720, but there is reason to doubt its authenticity.
