The page for the monarchy in Hyrule.
The Hyrulean Monarchy was once extremely powerful. Given the fact that Hyrule is more of an empire than anything, they had power over many conquered countries that are now Faron, Ordona, and Eldin Provinces. But that was hundreds of years ago. Twelve years ago, a civil war broke out between the monarchy and the people. The people felt that the Monarchy could no longer rule properly. The people of Hyrule "won" but they agreed to keep the monarchy if they get a say in things. Now the wealth is more distributed among the people of Hyrule and the monarchy lost almost all of its power, but they still seem to have a lot of influence.
