Actually sort of. UMBERTO ECO says this myth started in the 19th cent. This makes sense because the European nobility in the 19th cent. was nearing its end as democracy took over and they latched onto and elaborated this myth.

When cultures start to die (like the feudal culture of te aristocracy) they produce funky myths.
