The existence of Hang Tuah has been debated in recent years. The man who was considered a legend and the greatest Laksaman (admiral) of Malacca during the reign of Sultan Mansur Shah is said to be merely a legend where some has claimed that he was of Chinese origin. However, his most famous words ‘Takkan Melayu Hilang di dunia’ makes him the most respected Malay warrior of all time. The fact is, there was no historical evidence of his origins although his existence is real. Hence, the debate is still going on whether he was actually a real local hero or someone who has been ‘localized’.
