MY CRAZY THEORY
the first and second hokage are originally from hanagakure (village of flowers), but later on, decided to create the village of konoha and grew it to what it is today. however, in my theory, i suspect uchiha madara to also be from hanagakure and here's why.
as i said before, the sharingan is derived from the byakugan (FACT). however, the byakugan was never said to have started out in konoha. so, i can make this theory. yes, i will be flamed, but prove me wrong.
zetsu, is a missing nin, but has never really been accurately placed in a village. zetsu could be from hanagakure (speculation). zetsu has that split personality thing going on and so does madara/tobi. therefore, i think split personality thing could be a hanagakure trait/technique. since both zetsu and tobi/madara both display this trait, (and add in the fact that tobi is zetsu's subordinate), they COULD be from the same village. (speculation)
so, since zetsu and tobi COULD be from the same village and tobi and madara are the same person, TOBI/MADARA could have originated from hanagakure.
