Birth of a Gerudo King by kichisu Birth of a Gerudo King by kichisu
This is my entry for the :iconthehistoryofhyrule: 2013 Calendar contest!

I enjoyed working on this very much since it is rarely for me to make a whole illustration nowadays. (especially a LoZ one!)

As the title says; birth of a Gerudo King

Is this supposed to be Ganon or another Gerudo King before/after him?

It a baby! Wait...


HOW do they reproduce??? How do they do it?

I am disturbed because I remember that rumor from one of the gossip stones that they go to Hyrule Castle Town to look for boyfriends, yet we don't know what became of them as you see no men around the fortress 0_0

i believe it's a bit like what the amazons did
they raid the towns, fuck the men, then leave with their spoils. there could be a part of the fortress we don't have access to where they keep the men they deemed worthy of capturing for basically sex slaves (likely warriors) but well that obviously wouldn't be put into an E rated game so it was left out.

I say it's gypsy magic :)Perhaps they just kill the men after they are pregnant.

Oh shoot, I hope not. That would be some serious black widow business.

One night stands would certainly be preferable to that 0_o

This is an amazingly awesome piece. Its so rare for anyone to depict the birth of Ganondorf, or his younger years! I hope to see more unique arts like this from you.

What if they made a zelda game where a new Gerudo boy is born but the guy the mother slept with was one of the Links descendants, so the kid had to grow up as a their and struggle with being the next reincarnation of the Hero or the Evil King.

One think that always struck my curiosity was where did they keep their men. I mean to keep having children they would have to have a man or two lying around

The Gerudo Tribe is a race composed entirely of women. Only once every one-hundred years is a male born, and that male becomes the next king of the tribe. For the most part, children are the result of one-night-stands - *cough* Hylians *cough* - because to them, love is petty and beneath them. Most of the time, the king is dead before the end of his reign, so there is a short period of time where the tribe goes without a king.

Also, If the king lived a good 80 years he would be able to make babies from the time he was 20 to the time he was maybe 50? So that's 30 years of babies he could be making and im sure he would be busy making them...

That's doesn't mean they'd be boys. The chances of a boy before the hundred year mark is far too slim for even the gerudo king.

Ganon was probably older than even that, using dark magic to stay alive.

Either somewhere in the fortress, or the children are the result of a one night stand.

Awesome idea to draw this moment! I can really imagine the Gerudos to celebrate the birth of their next king. As Contraltissimo wrote, this is really a moment most of don't think about. If Demise possessed him after his birth, that could very well happened in the following night :)
Absolute great artwork!

Beautiful! But I've always wondered... if the village is entirely female, how exactly was Ganondorf born?
...Maybe it's best not to think about it.

I'd be interested how Twinrova fits into this. Didn't Navi refer to them as his surrogate mother during the boss fight?

She did! I kinda imagine woman with the baby and the one giving him attention is the Twinrova :) When they were younger of course... xD
