The History of the Zora, Part Three is an Object in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Location and Uses

The History of the Zora, Part Three is a Stone Monument that is found east of Ralis Pond. The Side Quest "Zora Stone Monuments" requires Link to read this Monument.

Inscribed is the story of a Zora king who was not skilled at fighting.[2] When a horde of monsters gathered in the Zodobon Highlands, the queen wove one of her scales into his armor, hoping it would protect him.[3] A ray of light ended up reflecting off the scale during battle, saving the king from a deadly blow from a Lizalfos general.[4] Ever since this miracle, it has become tradition for Zora princesses to create Zora Armor for their future husbands.[5]

Quote1.png History of the Zora, Part Three
Miracle of the White Scale
As told by King Dorephan

Our scholars say that in the distant past, Zora's Domain had a king with no special talent for the art of war.

What he lacked in skill with a blade, he made up for in love for his people, and especially love for his queen.

One day, news reached the king of a horde of monsters gathering in the Zodobon Highlands.

The king steeled himself for war to protect his people, but the queen knew how ill suited for the task he was.

Worried for his life, she wove one of her own scales into his armor, hoping that her love would protect him in battle.

It seemed for a time that the tide of battle favored the Zora and that all would make it safely home.

But the cunning Lizalfos general saw an opening and seized it, driving the king's forces into a corner.

Just when the general's sword was ready to crash down upon the king, a miracle took place.

An errant sunbeam reflected from the scale on his armor blinded the Lizalfos, stopping the deathblow from falling.

This was the chance the king needed to rally his forces and turn the tide, taking down the general and securing victory.

This came to be known as the Miracle of the White Scale, a scale that only female Zora possess.

It was this miracle that began the tradition of Zora princesses crafting armor for their future husbands.
