Did you know there was an official Nintendo Legend of Zelda Timeline? A historic map of how all the Zelda games line up in time? I thought they were all tall tales told over the generations and spread by word of mouth, ever changing, yet remaining the same? That's what we were all told in the 80's and 90's, right? At least that what I thought we were told, until someone went back in time they changed our timeline and the Legend of Zelda history forever and put The Original Zelda for the NES in the Era of Decline. It's very much like the Bearenstein Bears Experience.
Here is the Timeline found in the Nintendo Book
The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia
