Is it accurate that the accentuation of Spanish afflicted because a baron had a lisp? So Barcelona became “Barthelona”. If so, which baron was it?

The cedilla fabricated a “ts” complete and the “z” a “dz” sound. Both in time were simplified into the “lisp”, or what Spaniards alarm the “ceceo”.
Incidentally, this case replicates the two sounds represented by “zz” in Tuscan Italian – “ts” in “pizza”, “dz” in “azzuro” – which, in the Modenese dialect, are both arresting like English “th”.
