Now we know Drangleic isn't Lordran, but why where the original Lord Souls there? "The Last Giant" ? There are a bunch of them here. The crowns and the Throne of Want are nowhere to be seen.

Considerin that souls is a multiverse, maybe dks2 took place in an alternate world.

How do we know Drang isn't Lordran? Seems like it is. Also Last Giant isn't literally the last giant, you find some in the Gutter for instance. No idea what you are talking about for the last grouping

Vendrick's blessing... The whole story is about the end of hollowing (in a fashion). It's why you start Dark Souls 3 as UNKINDLED rather than undead...

Dark Souls 2, IS STILL CANON!! much like midichlorines
Curse the fiends, their children too. And their children, forever true.

This is simple. Most of the lore is fan-made interpretation -- because you can get XYZ from reading item descriptions and watching cut scenes. Instead, look at it this way. Dark Souls 3 is a swan song title and therefore has elements from the previous titles for nostalgia purposes -- regardless of lore. It's more of a "Hey fan, do you remember this place and this enemy?"

Don't attempt to make more of it than it is.
