View from the historical continuity, the Kingdom of Pagaruyung such changes are merely administrative system for the local community (tribe Minang).

Adityawarman bertahta initially as a subordinate king (uparaja) from Majapahit and subjected the important areas in Sumatra, such as Kuntu and Kampar, which is of pepper. However, news from China known Pagaruyung send envoys to China a quarter century later. Adityawarman presumably seeks escape from Majapahit.
