Princess Zelda is the eponymous character of The Legend of Zelda series. Similar to Link, the protagonist of the series, Zelda has had many incarnations throughout the series. Zelda is invariably the crown princess of Hyrule in whichever time period she appears. She is also the possessor of the Triforce of Wisdom, imbued with the essence of the Goddess Nayru.
Zelda is depicted as a kind and benevolent ruler with a wisdom beyond her years and a deep love towards the people she watches over. She is a caring, graceful and self-sacrificing person.
Princess Zelda is one of the three most important characters of The Legend of Zelda series, which is also why her name appears in the title of every game
