After the Kingdom Pasumayan Koto Batu ended, Datuk Ketumanggungan dan Datuk Perpatih Nan Sebatang, who were brothers with different mothers, founded a new kingdom.
Datuk Ketumanggungan founded the Kingdom of Bungo Setangkai at the river Sungai Tarab. Datuk Bandaro Putiah became a kind of prime-minister.
Datuk Perpatih Nan Sebatang founded the Kingdom of Dusun Tuo di Lima Kaum. His prime-minister was Datuk Bandaro Kuniang.
The kingdom of Pasumayan Koto Batu could not be continued, due to disagreement between Datuk Ketumanggungan and Datuk Perpatih Nan Sebatang, when debating the legislation governing Tarik Baleh: “whoever kills, will be killed”. However, the dispute could be settled by Datuk Suri Nan Banego.
