By now We all know about the book Hyrule Historia, which was released for the 25th Anniversary of Zelda. The book contains an official Zelda timeline, now this timeline can be very confusing. It still doesn't make sense how the timeline changes when the Hero of Time is defeated, because in Ocarina of Time Link doesn't get defeated he wins the battle against Gannon. I also think it's very weird that the most futuristic Zelda Skyward Sword is the first game in the timeline, well i hope it makes sense for you. GlitterBerri has translated the timeline for us using her skills, this is more or less old news now but it makes a great addition to Zelda Realm.
