Usually this happens when you promote a standby while the primary is still running. The promotion of the standby will create a new timeline (in this case 2) and then push WAL to the archive on this new timeline.

When you restore, PostgreSQL will try to recover to timeline 2 (by default) even though timeline 2 can't be reached from timeline 1 backups that were made after the promotion.

So, you need to instruct PostgreSQL to stay on timeline 1 rather than try to switch to timeline 2. You can do that by setting --target-timeline=current, i.e. stay on the timeline that was current when the backup was made.

Did I not have this problem because I restored to a different pg-path?

I believe you did not have this problem because you do not have an 00000002.history file in your archive to cause a problem for your recovery.
