We prove that the topological kernel of a compact connected translation generalized quadrangle is topologically isomorphic to ℝ or ℂ. Moreover, it turns out that the unique orthogonal quadrangle over ℂ is the only compact connected translation generalized quadrangle whose topological kernel is isomorphic to ℂ.
