Minish Cap fit in Timeline!

After WW Link and Zelda(Tetra) went to look for the "new" Hyrule. Then in PH they got sidetracked. So, I don't know much about ST but They found the Hyrule they were looking for.
So, Minish Cap has A king and a castle. Sooooo, Minish Cap must be after ST.
> WW> PH > ST > MC
Thanks for listening

Some interesting things: The King and the Ghost of Gustav in MC both look like King Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule from WW, who would have to be the last in his line. Also, if you turn the map in MC upside down it lines up pretty well with the classic Hyrule from OoT and such.
Of course, this is all assuming that there is an entire timeline, which Nintendo denied. So, I don't think MC fits in with those four.

Minish Cap takes place before Four Swords
Minish Cap takes is the first game in the Zelda timeline.
Which makes sense because MC shows how monsters got released into the world whereas they are already there in other Zelda games.As well as the inspiration for Link's cap.

"In his grief, the prince placed the princess in this room. He hoped that someday she would come back to life. So that this tragedy would never be forgotten, he ordered every female child born into the royal household should be given the name Zelda."

Still though, I'm dead set against Minish Cap being the first. I mean, look at the Goron population. Ten Gorons. Look at the Zora population. Zero. There was a whole city of Gorons in OoT. There was a whole area and temple used by the Zora in OoT. There were like three Gorons in Wind Waker because of a disaster. There were no Zora in Wind Waker. I would think Minish Cap is set in new Hyrule. The unifying war would also not have happened by then, also, so the Gorons would not have been friendly if Minish Cap was before OoT. Not only that, but there are many species in Minish Cap that don't show up in earlier games like OoT/MM and the Octoroks are land walking, as opposed to the earlier aquatic Octoroks.
I could name more things, but the MC-being-first argument has no clear advantage on either side, apparently, though I still say geography and cap should be irrelevant. I mean, how many times has that cap shown up? There is no definite origin. In LttP he was already wearing it before the start of his adventure. And he lived in a small town with nothing special about it like being watched over by a big tree deity. Geography shouldn't be used 'cause it's a formulaic game. If Nintendo is going to use the same scenery, it would be boring not to change it. It's bad practice to not do so.
