Question about English (US)

How do you make this sentence the past form.
“It may be true.”

You may answer me “It may have been true.” Of course I know that grammar, but also might is the past form of may, isn’t it? However I haven’t heard English speakers say might in the past sentence other than the sequences of tense like “I thought that it might be true” as far as I know.

So I wonder if you say might as past sentence other than the sequence of tense.
For example, when I say “it might be true,” can it mean the same as “it may have been true?” Or it is just lower possibility of “it may be true?”

I did my best to tell my question. Hope this sentence makes sense...
