The Triforce is a sacred golden relic left within the Sacred Realm by the Golden Goddesses, Din, Nayru, and Farore, once they finished creating the realm of Hyrule. It was formed at the point where the Goddesses departed, and that area became the Sacred Realm, a realm parallel to Hyrule itself. The Triforce consists of three separate triangles: the Triforce of Power on top, the Triforce of Courage on the right and the Triforce of Wisdom on the left. It is interesting to note that the Triforce, development-wise, did not start with three pieces. The first game only featured the Triforce of Power and the Triforce of Wisdom. The Triforce of Courage was added to the group one game later. This implies that the name "Triforce" initially referred to the shape of the pieces rather the number of pieces!!!
