The land of Hyrule is a mysterious place filled with amazing creatures, cultures, and histories. As part of the defined and well-known history, there are in turn many mysteries yet explored in this world. Within these pages, you will find an exploration deep into these mysteries, in the form of theories, historical articles, and timelines. Lastly, please note that all articles, timeline, and theories are based on the ideas of the webmaster and do not necessarily reflect the official canonical view of Nintendo or the Zelda creators. This is but a (well-founded) creation from a webmaster with way too much time on his hands. Enjoy!
In addition to the main sections of the Compendium, especially useful are the following sections that expand upon how I've reached my conclusions: specifically, what are my sources, and what are they from? What of the sources themselves, the whole concept of a Zelda canon? More about those topics below.
