History of Hyrule:

In the beginning, the world was created by the three goddesses, Din (The goddess of power that created the land), Nayru (The goddess of wisdom that created order), and Farore (The goddess of courage that created life). Before they departed, they also created the Triforce and gave it to the goddess Hylia for safekeeping. The Triforce embodies the three goddesses virtues, Power (the top piece), Wisdom (the bottom left piece), and Courage (the bottom right piece) and will grant a wish to anyone who has a balance all three of these traits.

So that's creation. Remember these names because you'll hear them again many times.

The timeline according to Hyrule Hystoria:

Skyward Sword

Minish Cap
