    As you know hyrule was created by the three godesses as stated in OoT (Din, Nayru, Faror) and when they finished they left leaving the triforce the connection between hyrule and the sacred realm (where master swor lies)

    Sages emerged from hyrule constructing temples to protect the mastersword and the triforce

    then.. a war broke out of greed and lust in hyrul.... eventually the minish grew sick of the war and created the pircori sword that was given to Gustaf garbbed in green w/o a green hat(mentioned in minsh cap begining cut scene) who used this to stop this big war. He was dubbed hero of hyrule and made king of it so every 100 years they would worship it and hold a tournement to see who is the best swrdsmen and he would be able to touch it

    This is all stated in minish cap and considered to be the earliest of all games
    note the minish gave it 2 the hero of men not the hero of time he wore no hat and link at the begining of the story also wears no hat making him the very first link ever to be made

    when ezlo returns 2 his original form and he is not links hat anymore he gives link a very own green hat

    From here on every game execpt for majoras mask and minish cap include gannon having ocarina become the first no matter wat because they talk about the very beggining of gannon dorf a gerudo who searched for the triforce many years and gave up then eventually tricks the king into helping him

    from here on things feel weird after the game and beating gannon there are 2 hyruls left one with adult zelda and no link because she wants him 2 have a childhood so she warps him back in time before they met

    young link and young zelda

    back in hyrul A zelda warns link about it and he leaves before war breaks out
    so therefore he goes of in search of navi who is lost in the warp back at the end of the game so he goes of in search of her and winds up in termina

    Majoras mask next

    after he finishes that he atempts to return 2 hyrul via the sea and ends up being shipwreacked on koholint island where he has 2 fins the musical instruments wakes up the windwish and realizes it was all a dream so he ends up floating back 2 hyrul on a log (highly unprobable) and finds gannon has one the war

    Links awakening after Majoras mask


    soooo link duing his think collected up all his weapons and crud and deafeated gannon in his piggish form thus mking it thre orignal zelda for all men of hyrul had fled the turmoil and went north while link was till farther down south in hyrul zelda had taken the triforce of wisdom and broken it up making link have 2 search for all eight of em when he finds it he uses it 2 destroy gannon

    original zelda after links awkening


    many seasons after the original came zelda 2 where link finds about the real "legend" of zelda the king of hyruls son learned about such a tremendous power he wanted it so an evil wizard told him that his sister (zelda) knew about it so he put her in a deep sleep and overcome with such power he died in the process guitstricken the prince claimed that from now on every royal daughter shall be named zelda so the one that lies in the bed is the one and only zelda (remember that this is the not the same zelda as ocarina of time and minish capszelda they are all decendants this legend is supposed to have happend waaaay before minish cap so link only finds out about this vey late perhaps after a hthousand years and finds the triforce of courage and brings back zelda)

    zelda II after original zelda


    then fourswords happens amny way way way way way waylater when a new zelda and new link see that the picori sword is loose and vatti escapes so they defeat him

    fourswordsafter zelda II

    at the end o fourswrods u find out that the trapped gannon became vattii's puppet and set him free befor his demise giving him the trident of powert which was used on the super nintendo against link and zelda little later in a link 2 the past

    link 2 the past after 4swords

    then link goes 2 check on the triforce and is trapped in lybrinna (GBC oracle of Ages and is stuck there after killing of the person atempting 2 harness the power of time)


    now after this this is the last generation of the hero of time and gannon takes over leading 2 wind waker a completely new link with a new generation of zelda and this link is th ehero of winds who had 2 resurect 2 triforce of courage and we all know that phantom hourglass is a sequal and unlesss int his game gannon is ressurected t fits into the timeline

    after that game link goes 2 check ont he triforce again (diffrent time perios) and winds up in holodrum (GBC oracle of Seasons)

    this is where i have been puzzled

    may be twilight princess will fit in after link comes back in holodrum because after beating both games u realize that gannon is the master mind between the 2 games and the real hero of time died of because he wasnt able to reach gannon without mending the problems in holodrum when the hero of winds does this gannon is deafeated once more and link returns 2the normal world



    twighligh princess has not been included because it is 2 new and this consits of older games sorry if your comfused (i gathered all this data from diffrent ppl) so it mostly my own with a bit from everybody

    please comment

    This is all nice but, a few things.

    Windwaker = The Last Zelda, All of Hyrule is GONE and flooded. Anything based after this doesnt take place in or around Hyrule on the timeline.

    Fourswords = Vati was GANONS puppet, not the other way around.

    Twilight Princess = Hard to place, its probably a few centuries after OOT but BEFORE Windwaker. Since the original Hero of Time (Link from OOT) is a legend in Twilight Princess.)

    other then that its pretty good, a nice blend of the games and alot of it makes decent sense. I like how you fitted in a few of the games (like Links Awakening is him crashed after finishing majoras mask, nicely done).

    Kudos.

    Actually almost all that timeline is real fake, Twilight Princess is 100 years after Ocarina of Time, in the game he is known has "Hero of Legend" also stated in wind waker. Wind Waker is after Twilight Princess, and Phantom hourglass is after Wind Waker.

    Here is a TimeLine

    well then that means that ww isnt the last Zelda....YES!
    the whole minish cap zelda should have been made on a console considering it is the first zelda in the time line making it important to the series

    Oho, Kedar you got owned. It's OK though, you might need some more fact about TP, frankly because YOU DON'T HAVE IT.

    Alright, here's my timeline theory. Brace yourselves, it's long and there will be spoilers.

    I should add that I don't really believe Nintendo have any idea about the timeline, essentially what this is just my attempt to link the games in some sort of way. Some of it is based partly on a timeline theory on this web site: http://www.n-sider.com/articleview.php?articleid=248&page=1

    I reckon that Link, Zelda and Ganondorf are all being constantly reincarnated through time, and I have used Roman numerals to distinguish between each incarnation of Link, Zelda and Ganondorf (e.g. Link I, Link II, etc.). The Oracles and Four Swords games were hardest to place, and I'm not entirely with where I ended up putting them. Anyway, here goes:

    Beginning:

    As told in Ocarina of Time, Hyrule was created by the Three Goddesses. After this was done, the Triforce was left behind. It had the ability to bestow great power on a person, but only if they were balanced in terms of courage, strength, and wisdom.

    Link I (The Minish Cap):

    This Triforce eventually came into possession of Hyrule's King. A Picori sorcerer, known as Vaati, learned of the existence of this great object, and decided to try and take it. Every year in Hyrule a swordfighting competition was held to celebrate the Picori's aid to the people of Hyrule. Vaati entered the tournament and won, but then he broke the Picori Blade and turned the King's daughter (Zelda I) into stone. Zelda I's childhood friend Link I set out on a quest to save her and restore the Picori Blade, with the aid of a Picori named Ezlo. Link I restored the blade to its former glory, and it became the Four Sword. He managed to rescue the Princess and save the day.

    Backstory:

    After the King died, the Triforce was passed onto his son, but when he tried to claim it, he found he could not. With the help of an unscrupulous magician, he questioned his sister, Zelda I. She refused to tell them anything, so the magician cast an eternal sleep spell over her. The Prince came to regret what he had done, and decreed that from now on, all royal princesses would be called Zelda. He also decided that it was too dangerous to keep the Triforce around, so it was moved to the Sacred Realm. Access to this realm was controlled by the Temple of Time, which also housed a new weapon, the Master Sword. A sage named Rauru was left to guard the Sacred Realm. That didn't stop some people trying to claim the Triforce though. At least one group of magicians managed to get into the Sacred Realm, but they were stopped by the Goddesses and sent to another world known as the Twilight Realm. Their descendants became the Twili, and access to this other Realm was controlled by the Mirror of Twilight.

    Link II (Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Four Swords):

    In the Gerudo Desert, a powerful new King of the Gerudo had come to power, Ganondorf I. He set about invading Hyrule and trying to gain access the Sacred Realm using very powerful magic. Ganondorf had the power to enter the Sacred Realm using his own magic, and tried to prevent anyone gaining the three keys to the Temple of Time. The Great Deku Tree was guardian of one these keys, and he sent one of the children in his care, Link II, on a daring quest to stop Ganondorf. Link collected the three keys to the Temple of Time, gained the Master Sword, but was sent to the future by Rauru, who believed he was too young to fight Ganondorf. In the future, Ganondorf had gained control of the Triforce of Power, but because he lacked the virtues of wisdom and courage, those Triforces did not go to him, but instead they went to Zelda and Link. It was with this that the three became linked: the three of them would have their "essence" (souls?) constantly reincarnated through the ages by the power of the Triforce. Eventually, after awakening six sages (one from each major race: Saria, Darunia, Ruto, Nabooru, Impa, and Zelda), Link managed to defeat Ganondorf and seal him in the Sacred Realm. After this, Zelda decided to give Link his lost years back, and sent him back to his childhood. Shortly afterward Link set out on a journey leading to the events of Majora's Mask. After that, Link returned to Hyrule, where Vaati had returned. Again, he was stopped by Link II in Four Swords.

    Link III (A Link to the Past, Oracle of Seasons/Oracle of Ages, Four Swords Adventures, Link's Awakening):

    Generations passed, and eventually the Temple of Time was forgotten about after Hyrule Castle was moved (due to the Lost Woods overgrowing). Ganondorf I was still in the Sacred Realm, which had now become the Dark World due to his influence. A wizard known as Agahnim was trying to help Ganondorf escape the Dark World, so a new Hero, Link III set out to stop him after hearing telepathic messages from Zelda III. Link III traveled to the Dark World and finally killed Ganondorf I. Both the Light and Dark Worlds were restored. However, all was not well, as Ganondorf's mother(s) Twinrova was trying to revive him. The Triforce sent Link III to the parallel worlds of Labryna and Holodrum, where Twinrova was trying to sacrifice Zelda III in order to bring Ganondorf back to life. After Link saved her, they sacrificed themselves instead, bringing back Ganondorf, who was again killed by Link. However, it did not matter as Ganondorf, like Link and Zelda, was linked to the Triforce, and was reincarnated as Ganondorf II, (I think that Ganondorf, unlike Link or Zelda is aware of his previous lives), attempts to again destroy Hyrule with the help of Vaati, but he is again stopped by Link and sealed in the Four Sword. Link handed the Four Sword over to the Seven Sages who decided to seal him in the Twilight Realm. Some time afterward, Link set off on a journey of enlightenment, leading to the events of Link's Awakening.

    Link IV (Twilight Princess):

    In the Twilight Realm there was a war of succession raging between two claimants to the throne: Midna and Zant. Ganondorf II decided to make an alliance with Zant, and lent him some of his power to defeat Midna. In return Ganondorf asked that Zant help him invade Hyrule, so Zant turned the Twili into a race of mindless shadow monsters, and stopped Midna by turning her into an imp. But she found help in the form of Link IV, who she knew was a Hero because he turned into a wolf upon entering the Twilight Realm. Together the two of them killed Zant and Ganondorf II.

    Link V (Legend of Zelda, The Adventure of Link):

    At some time before the original Legend of Zelda game, Link, Zelda and Ganondorf were revived as Link V, Zelda V, and Ganondorf III. Ganondorf once again invaded Hyrule and Link set out to stop him, after collecting the pieces of the Triforce that Zelda had managed to fragment. Link killed Ganondorf, but some time later Link set out on another journey to awaken the sleeping princess, Zelda I.

    Link VI (The Wind Waker, Phantom Hourglass):

    Once more Ganondorf was revived as Ganondorf IV, and who would of guessed it, he tries to invade Hyrule. But this time, instead of a Hero being sent to stop him, the land was flooded almost completely, leaving only the highest mountains left above the sea as small islands scattered across "the Great Sea". Hyrule was sealed away and trapped in time, the reasoning being that as long as there is a Hyrule, Ganondorf will always try to control it. But somehow Ganondorf managed to escape the seal and only a new Link, Link VI, could stop him, with some help from Tetra (unaware that she was in fact Zelda VI) and the King of Red Lions (a talking boat, under the control of the King of Hyrule). Link VI once more defeated Ganondorf, and he and Tetra then set sail to other lands, and to whatever happens in Phantom Hourglass.

    Phew, that took a while to write! :)
