Ocarina of Time
Majora's Mask
Wind Waker
A Link To The Past
Legend of Zelda
Adventure of Link

The gameboys can go whereever.

See, I was thinking that Link the 2nd isn't literally a descendant of the first, but instead his reincarnation, as Ganon says. A new hero is born every time Ganon appears. I think it's more of a spiritual thing. The Zeldas, on the other hand, are all part of the same family.

Maybe by LttP's time the water has dried up and Hyrule resurfaced. Or maybe, as Tetra says, she and Link did manage to find a new land and call it Hyrule. But no, because how would they know about the old landmarks?

My theory: The timeline is so confusing and scattered that I am no longer concerned with it.
L is real

Wait- revelation!

WW takes place in an alternate reality. It's after Link saves Hyrule as an adult. So, maybe WW is just there to tie up lose ends that OoT left open. Maybe nothing comes after it, especially since Hyrule is gone.

I don't think Link and Zelda could have married after Ocarina of Time, because that would put all of their descendants in the same bloodline, not to mention raise questions about why Link and Zelda always meet for the first time in every game.

In The Wind Waker, the King of Red Lions tells Jabun that Link is not connected with the Hero of Time, raising even more questions.

I find it easier these days to let stuff like this go.

But then. in the final battle, Ganon says that he is. Who is right?

But they'd still be of the same bloodline. They'd all be cousins.

On his return to Hyrule, Link is trapped in the dream of the WindFish, on the Island of Kohilint, where he must stop the Nightmares and awaken the Windfish. After that, Link finds his way back to Hyrule to find it in Ruins, ect., ect., ect.

I mean that they can go whereever in my mind. The GBs have the most debate around them anyway.
