The Royal Family's Tomb is a location in Ocarina of Time.

Features and Overview

The large headstone at the back of the Kakariko Village Graveyard conceals the entrance to the Royal Family's Tomb. It is flanked by two smaller headstones referencing the famous Composer Brothers of Kakariko Village. The entrance to the Tomb can only be opened by playing "Zelda's Lullaby" in front of the headstone, proving a connection with the Royal Family.[1]

The inside of the Tomb is infested with Keese and ReDeads, along with poisoned water. Located at the end is another tombstone inscribed with a poem written by the Composer Brothers.[2] Right below it is the secret melody of the deceased composers, the "Sun's Song."[3]
