Kings And Queens

KING TIRIAN-

King Tirian (born between 2530 and 2535, Narnia time) is the protagonist of The Last Battle in which he is the last King of Narnia who has to defend his kingdom against subversion and invasion. He is well-respected by the Narnians, and a skilled swordsman. He is descended from Prince Caspian, and the son of King Earlian. His closest friend is Jewel The Unicorn.

Troubles in Narnia cause King Tirian to doubt the purported return of Aslan. Enraged at Calormene treatment of a talking beast, he and Jewel slay the men, but are then filled with guilt at this act and surrender to the Calormene enclave and Shift.There Tirian witnesses the fraudulent exhibition of ‘Aslan’ and is sentenced to death by Shift. He prays for Aslan or the friends of Narnia to come save Narnia, and Eustace and Jill come to his rescue.

He leads an assault upon the Calormenes at the stable and, on the verge of defeat, wrestles their leader Rishda Tarkaan into the stable to meet Tash.There he finds himself in Aslan’s Country, meets King Peter, King Edmund, and Queen Lucy, and witnesses the final part of Narnia.

CASPIAN I- First Telmarine King of Narnia after Telmarine invasion around 1998 Narnian Time. Known as Caspian the Conqueror.

CASPIAN VI- Great-Great-Grandfather of Caspian X Builder of the Castle that Miraz Rules from.

Caspian VIII-Father of Caspian IX and Miraz

Caspian IX: Father of Caspian X, killed by his younger brother Miraz.

Caspian X- Caspian X, King of Narnia, Lord of Cair Paravel and Emperor of the The Lone Islands, also called Caspian the Seafarer and Caspian the Navigator. When Lewis first introduces Caspian in this book, he is the 13-year-old nephew and heir to King Miraz of Narnia. By this time, over 1000 years since the rule of the High King Peter, talking animals are no longer allowed to openly live in Narnia, having been driven into hiding by Caspian’s ancestors, the Telmarines. In fact, the talking beasts are presented as nothing more than myth, and are a forbidden subject in Miraz’s castle. When Caspian is a very little boy, his nurse tells him of these stories, and he is fascinated by them, but when he mentions them in the presence of his uncle, Miraz, he rebukes Caspian and dismisses his nurse. Miraz appoints Doctor Cornelius as Caspian’s tutor and mentor. Cornelius has dwarfish as well as human blood, though Miraz does not know this. Cornelius teaches Caspian the sciences and history that his uncle wants, but he also secretly tells him the true stories of Narnia’s past. Caspian also discovers that Miraz killed his father, Miraz’s elder brother Caspian XI, in order to take the throne for himself. When Miraz’s wife Prunaprismia gives birth to a son, Cornelius advises Caspian to flee for his life, or Miraz will try to kill Caspian so that his own son will be the heir to the throne instead of Caspian. Caspian flees, taking with him Queem Susan’s magic horn, which Doctor Cornelius gives him; this horn will bring help to the person who blows it. He eventually meets the creatures that he once thought were mythological; most of them agree to accept him as their king. When Miraz attacks this group, Caspian blows the horn, and summons the old kings and queens, Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy back to Narnia. With Aslan’s help, they defeat Miraz in what Lewis called the “War of Deliverance” and restore old Narnia. Prince Caspian becomes King Caspian X in year 2303 of the Narnian calendar. In the Voyage Of the Dawn Treader, it is learned that, one year after the events of Prince Caspian in 2304, King Caspian X wages war upon the Giants of the North, and successfully defeats them in several decisive victories, the likes of which were not seen since the days of High King Peter. In his own words King Caspian “gave those troublesome giants on the frontier such a good beating last summer that they pay us tribute now.” (The Voyage of the Dawn Treader) the action of the novel is set three years after the events in Prince Caspian and lasts from 2306–7. Order has been re-established in Narnia, and Caspian has constructed the ship Dawn Treader to sail the eastern seas in search of the seven telmarine lords who had been loyal to his father and were sent away by Miraz. On their way to the Lone Islands, the ship discovers Edmund, Lucy, and their cousin Eustace in the water; they have been magically transported to the Narnian world. With the aid of the three children, Caspian and the ship’s crew sail east towards “the end of the world” to find the missing lords and discover several new lands. When the Dawn Treader reaches the end of the world, which leads into Aslan’s Country, the crew member and mouse Reepicheep(who had fought to liberate Narnia in Prince Caspian) leaves himself in Aslan’s Country, which, at this point in the series, had been described as paradise and bliss. During this voyage, Caspian meets the unnamed daughter of Ramandu.They marry in 2310 and they later have a son, Rilian, who is the Heir apparent to the Narnian throne. In the Silver Chair, Caspian is weak and ailing at the age of 66. Eleven years earlier, his wife died of a serpent’s bite and their son Rilian disappeared. The aged Caspian has set off to sea to see the lands of his youth, but many believe that he has gone to seek Aslan in order to ask who should be the next King of Narnia, fearing that he will never see his son again. Meanwhile, Eustace and Jill rescue the lost Prince from the underworld where he had been held captive by his mother’s murderer, the shapeshifting Lady Of The Green Kurtle. Caspian returns to Narnia long enough to embrace his son before he dies. After his death, Caspian is rejuvenated by Aslan and he accompanies Eustace and Jill back to their school Expiritment House where they deal with the gang of bullies known as Them. Finally, Caspian’s spirit returns to Aslan’s Country. In the Last Battle, Caspian makes a very brief appearance at the end of this novel, the final entry in the Narnia series. He is present with all the other major characters who reappear at the end of the Narnian world in Aslan’s Country.

Col: First King of Archenland, son of Frank V.

Cor, or Shasta-Shasta is raised by a fisherman named Arsheesh, who lives on the coast of Calormen which is a desert land to the south ofNarnia, beyond Archenland and the Great Desert. Shasta believes that Arsheesh is his father until he overhears Arsheesh negotiating to sell him to a Tarkkan(a Calormene nobleman) as a slave. He goes to the stable and starts talking to the Tarkaan’s horse there. To his surprise, the horse talks back, warns him that his new master is cruel, and suggests that they escape together to Narnia, a land of freedom, where nearly all the animals talk.

Shasta agrees to escape with the horse, nicknamed Bree, and they start off that night. Through further adventures, Shasta encounters another fugitive, a Tarkeena named Aravis who is also fleeing from Calormen with a talking horse, Hwin. During his travels, Shasta meets an exact look-alike, named Prince Corin of Archenland, for whom he is briefly mistaken. Shasta learns that Calormen is planning to attack Archenland as a step to conquering Narnia, and sets off on a race to warn Archenland to prepare for war. Upon arrival, he successfully warns the Archenlanders. Riding with the Archenlanders, Shasta becomes lost in dense fog, but is guided by the great lion Aslan through a mountain pass into Narnia, where his warning musters a force of Narnians to come to the aid of their allies. He participates in the battle against the Calormenes (in which Archenland reigns victorious), convinced to do so by Prince Corin.

He then discovers who he really is: Prince Cor of Archenland, elder son of King Lune and twin brother to Prince Corin. He learns that there was a prophecy made about him when he was only an infant, that he would save Archenland from a great evil. This prophecy led the enemies of Archenland to kidnap him, and eventually brought him into the care of Arsheesh while still an infant. Shasta is welcomed into the royal family and eventually marries Aravis, who comes and lives with them in Anvard (King Lune’s castle). Their son, Ram the Great, becomes (we are told) the greatest king of Archenland. Shasta and Aravis are both mentioned as being in the second Narnia at the end of The Last Battle.

Daughter of Ramandu: Marries Caspian X, killed by a green serpent. Her name is never mentioned.

Erlian: father of King Tirian and the sixth king of Narnia in the line of Rilian.

King Frank and Queen Helen-

Frank’s last fare almost proved the end of his life, for it was none other than Jadis, Empress of Charn, accompanied by her bumbling squire, Andrew Ketterly. Jadis seems to have “hired” his cab after robbing a jewelry store. Exactly what transpired in the cab is unclear, but Jadis hijacked the cab and drove the horse so hard that the cab was utterly destroyed. When Frank finally caught up with the cab, it was a total shambles, and Jadis was astride the horse and was whipping the horse into a dangerous frenzy. Frank prevailed upon the police constables at the scene to allow him to try to calm the horse, but Jadis demanded that he keep his hands off her “royal charger.” Frank apparently paid her little heed, even when she wrenched off a bar from a lamp-post and started to attack three constables with it. Frank’s first and only concern was for his horse–and thus he still had contact with the horse when Digory Kirke grabbed hold of Jadis and then used his yellow ring to take Jadis to the Wood Between The Worlds. In this way, Digory, Polly Plummer, Jadis, the horse, and Frank himself came into that Wood.

They did not stay in the Wood long. Jadis, severely weakened by being in the Wood, could not direct the horse any longer. Strawberry is immediately calmed, and he goes into another pool to drink. The others follow and, with everyone in contact with one another, Digory used a green ring to bring them to the world that this pool represented–which was Narnia, but Narnia when it is formless and empty.

Helen heard a deep, pure note, which is described as being a call one hearing it would not only wish to obey, but would be able to obey instantly. In the next instant, she found herself standing in a calm, peaceful woodland, with her husband and two strange children (Digory Kirke, and Polly Plummer) standing nearby, and a large Lion (Aslan) dominating the scene. At first she believed that she was dreaming, but only for a moment. Then when she became fully aware of Aslan, she realized soon enough that this was not a Lion who would violently attack her, but one who was indeed a King, and she was in his dominion. She curtsied to him, perhaps as she would have curtsied to Queen Victoria back in England. Then she stood by her husband’s side, understandably shy.

Of the party that were now landed in Narnia, Frank was the only one who had complete command of himself (although this was partly because he didn’t realize that they were in a different world and seemed to think that they had, instead, fallen down a hole of some sort). He urged everyone to remain calm, and suggested that they ought to “pass the time” by singing a hymn. This he proceeded to do, choosing Come Ye Thankful People, Come, but only the two children joined in. He later broke off singing when Aslan began to sing his own song of creation–a song that Frank liked, to the point of chiding the others for talking when he wanted to listen. Only the children and the horse enjoyed the song as much as he.When at length Aslan had Narnia laid out and the first animals created, Frank was surprised to see his own horse “awakened” to become a Talking Horse. Frank’s first discussion with his old cab horse was inauspicious at first, because the horse remembered being a slave, a memory the horse did not find pleasant. Frank eventually confessed that he never liked working in London, which was no place for him or his horse.When Aslan called his first council-of-war to deal with the Jadis situation, Digory announced his desire to seek an audience with Aslan, in the hope that Aslan might give him some kind of cure for his ailing mother. Frank offered to accompany the children, because he wanted to see Aslan himself. When he first saw Aslan face to face, Frank doffed his hat in respect–and when he finally spoke to Aslan, he began to lose the harsh Cockney accent he had affected in London and to speak with the accent of the country dweller. Frank also realized, when Aslan asked him, that he knew Aslan, though not in Aslan’s present aspect; Aslan told him,”You know me better than you think you know, and you shall come to know me better yet.” Aslan asked him whether he, Frank, would enjoy living in Narnia for life, and Frank hesitated, only because he was married and his wife was not present. So Aslan, by singing a single pure note, brought Frank’s wife to stand by his side. Aslan then dumbfounded Frank by announcing that he and Helen would become the first King and Queen of Narnia. Frank protested that he lacked sufficient education for such a job–but Aslan helped him to realize that he had every qualification that a King of Narnia would require–facility with the practices of agriculture, a basic sense of justice, and a willingness to try his courage in war, when war would inevitably come. Frank accepted, and he and Helen celebrated their coronation after Digory brought back an apple and used it to plant the Tree of Protection.Their descendants became the original Kings and Queens of Narnia, who were later succeeded by the Pevensie children. The White Witch Jadis also ruled for a short time, but illegitimately (as she was a Daughter of Lilith, not Eve)King Frank later appears in “The Last Battle” with Queen Helen at the end of time.

Frank V: King of Narnia, presumably a descendant of Frank I, father of Col of Archenland.

 Gale- was a King of Narniaand was the first Emperor of The Lone Islands. Gale was ninth in descent from King Frank, and therefore presumably the tenth king of Narnia. It was under King Gale that the Lone Islands became part of the lands of Narnia. Gale sailed to the Lone Islands and there slew a dragon. The people of the Lone Islands gave their country to him in gratitude. All that is known about King Gale is from a single sentence in chapter eight in The Last Battle. Apparently nothing was known about King Gale’s achievements during the reigns of King Peter and his siblings nor during the reign of Caspian X. A conversation in The Voyage OF the Dawn Treader reveals that neither Caspian nor King Edmund knew how the Lone Islands came to be under the crown of Narnia. The narrator writes that he does not know either, but if he finds out and it is interesting then perhaps he will write the story. C.S. Lewis never wrote that story. Years later in The Last Battle the story has apparently been rediscovered.

King Lune-King of Archenland, widower, father of Cor and Corin.

Miraz: usurping king of Narnia, son of Caspian VIII.

King Nain-King of Archenland during reign of Miraz.

King Edmund-

Although he betrays his siblings to the White Witch while under her influence, as the story goes on he accepts the error of his ways. He is redeemed with the intervention of Aslan and joins the fight against the witch. Fulfilling an ancient prophecy, he became King Edmund the Just, King of Narnia and co-ruler with the other Pevensies. In The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Edmund is one of the main characters, and the character who develops the most over the course of story.

It is implied in the book that Edmund started life as a likeable person, but then changed for the worse and began to act meanly after attending a new school (although in the 2005 film adaptation of the book, it is implied that he is upset that their father was forced to serve in the war and that they are sent away from home as a result). Edmund is cruelly dismissive to Lucy when she first finds the entrance to Narnia through the warxdrobe, and is the second of the Pevensie children to go to Narnia, after following Lucy to tease her. While there, he meets the White Witch and eats some enchanted Turkish Delight, which causes an addiction in the person who eats it. As a result, he promises the Witch that he will bring his siblings to her house, not knowing that she intends to kill them all to prevent the fulfillment of a Narnian prophesy. Upon returning, he denies having been in Narnia, not wishing to admit that Lucy’s story had been true, but later accidentally lets slip in a remark to Peter that shows that he had in fact been in Narnia. Later, when all four of the Pevensie children go through the wardrobe, he sneaks away to the White Witch’s castle, where he expects to be made a prince and later a king. However, his opinion of the Witch changes dramatically when they encounter a group of creatures enjoying a feast provided by Father Christmas. When the creatures refuse to deny to the Witch that the benefactor has entered the land, a clear sign of her waning power; she turns them to stone over the protests of Edmund. In the 2005 film after Maugrim catches the fox which helped the beavers and the other three Pevensies elude him, the witch turns the fox to stone and hits Edmund for withholding information about Aslan and his army. Now realizing to his horror the evil with which he has allied himself, he is quickly relegated as the Witch’s prisoner. The Witch prepares to put him to death, as is her right and duty to do to traitors; she ties Edmund to a tree and draws her knife, but a rescue party sent by Aslan arrives, frees him and brings him to his siblings and the rest of Aslan’s army. Edmund becomes fully reformed after a long conversation with Aslan. The next day, the Witch reiterates her claim to Edmund’s life. She and Aslan work out an agreement that Aslan will die in Edmund’s place, but unknown to her, the magical nature of this contract allows Aslan to be brought back to life. While Aslan and Edmund’s sisters race to free the cursed prisoners in the Witch’s castle, Edmund consolidates his reformation by aligning himself with Peter’s army in battle, where he plays a critical role in neutralizing the White Witch’s most dangerous advantage, her wand, and is gravely wounded in the attempt. However, he is saved from death by the timely arrival of reinforcements led by Aslan (who defeats the Queen), and by Lucy, who gives Edmund a dose of a magic cordial which can quickly heal any injury. Eventually Edmund Pevensie, completely reformed, becomes King Edmund the Just, co-ruler of Narnia with Queen Lucy, Queen Susan and High King Peter, and is knighted as Duke of Lantern Waste, Count of the Western March, and Knight of the Noble Order of the Table. Edmund and his siblings return to Narnia to aid Caspian, rightful King of Narnia, against King Miraz the Usurper. He convinces Trumpkin the dwarf, that they are the Kings and Queens from the legend by defeating him in a sparring practice. He later helps Peter and Trumpkin defend Caspian against Nikabrik, the hag, and the were-wolf. And he is there to witness Peter’s duel against Miraz. He is the first person to believe Lucy when she sees Aslan, and he supports her against the disbelief of Trumpkin and her other siblings. Edmund is shown in a more positive light in this book than in the last. His demeanor is more cooperative and loyal, even under the guidance of Peter. Edmund, Lucy and their cousin Eustace enter the world of Narnia through a magic painting, and end up in the ocean. They are rescued and brought on board the Dawn Treader, where they are reunited with King Caspian, who is on a quest to search for the missing Lords that his uncle had sent to explore other lands some years before. This is Edmund and Lucy’s last adventure in the world of Narnia. King Edmund, Queen Susan and Tumnus the Faun are visitors in the country of Calormene, where the prince Rabadash wants to force Susan to marry him. Mistaking Shasta for the missing Prince Corin of Archenland, Narnia’s ally, Edmund scolds the young boy for running off and making everyone worry. The Narnians manage to escape by Tumnus’ clever idea, which leads Rabadash to convince his father that they should take Narnia by invading Archenland. Shasta manages to warn Archenland in time, and meets King Edmund once again, this time with his sister Queen Lucy, in Anvard (Peter is in the North fighting off the giants from the border, and Susan has been left in charge in Cair Paravel). Edmund and King Lune of Archenland lead the fight against the Calormene army and defeat them. After seeing a vision of King Tirian of Narnia pleading for their help in England, Peter and Edmund go to the Ketterley’s old home in London to dig up the magic rings that Professor Kirke buried in the yard as a boy in The Magician’s Nephew to be used by Eustace and Jill to reach Narnia. They are waiting for the others at the train platform when the accident happens. Edmund accompanies everyone, except Susan, into Aslan’s country. Like his brother and younger sister, he is killed in the train crash and is transferred to Aslan’s country, where they all live forever.

 Queen Susan-In The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Susan is given a bow and arrows by Father Christmas, together with a magical horn to blow in difficult times to bring aid. Susan shows her excellence at archery, but is advised to stay out of the battle. Together with her sister Lucy, she witnesses Aslan’s death and resurrection on the Stone Table. After the battle, she is crowned as Queen of Narnia by Aslan, and shares the monarchy with her brothers Peter and Edmunt and her sister Lucy. She later becomes known as Queen Susan the Gentle. The period of their reign is considered the Golden Age of Narnia. Throughout the book, Susan is the voice of caution and common sense. Even at the end, after a number of years in Narnia, she counsels against pursuing the White Stag, fearing the upset to the established order she and her siblings all sense the pursuit might bring.Susan’s magical horn plays an important part in the adventures of Prince Caspian. The horn is an ancient relic given to the future King Caspian X by his tutor, the half-dwarf magician Doctor Cornelius. When the Prince’s life is threatened by King Miraz the Usurper, Caspian blows the horn and the Pevensies are magically transferred to Narnia from a railway station in England. Using the bow and arrows she has retrieved from the ruin of Cair Paravel, Susan proves her legendary prowess at archery by defeating Trumpkin the dwarf in a friendly competition. She denounces Lucy’s belief in Aslan’s presence although she later admits to having known deep down that it was true. Aslan tells Susan that she has “listened to fears”, but his breath soon restores her faith and she immerses herself in their adventures as deeply as in the first book. She later accompanies Lucy as Aslan revives the forest and river spirits of Narnia. By the conclusion of Prince Caspian, Aslan says that she and Peter will never enter Narnia again because they have grown too old.

In The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Susan accompanies her parents on a trip to America, while Peter is being tutored by Professor Digory Kirke, and Edmund and Lucy have to stay with their relatives, the Scrubbs. Susan is considered “the pretty one of the family”, which makes Lucy insecure. Lucy is strongly tempted to recite a spell which she finds in Coriakin’s magic book, which will make her beautiful “beyond the lot of mortals”, and she pictures a plain-looking Susan jealous of her beauty. In The Horse and His Boy, set during the Pevensie siblings’ rulership of Narnia, Susan plays a minor part. She is described as a gentle lady with black hair falling to her feet. Shasta finds her to be the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. As Queen Susan, she is asked to marry the Calormene Prince Rabadash. Her rejection of him and her subsequent escape from Calormen lead the Prince to seek the secret approval of his father, the Tisroc, for his plan to attack Archenland, as a means of capturing Susan, and in the hope of conquering Narnia at a later date. In The Last Battle, Susan is conspicuous by her absence. Peter says that she is “no longer a friend of Narnia”, and (in Jill Pole’s words) “she’s interested in nothing now-a-days except nylons and lipstick and invitations”. Similarly, Eustace Scrubb reports that she says, “What wonderful memories you have! Fancy you’re still thinking about all those funny games we used to play when we were children.” Thus, Susan does not enter the real Narnia at the end of the series. It is left ambiguous, however, whether or not Susan’s absence is permanent, especially since Lewis stated that “The books don’t tell us what happened to Susan. She is left alive in this world at the end, having by then turned into a rather silly, conceited young woman. But there’s plenty of time for her to mend and perhaps she will get to Aslan’s country in the end… in her own way.”

King Peter-Peter was born in 1927 and is 13-14 years old when he appears in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. By The Last Battle he is 22 years old. As the eldest brother, he tries his best to protect his other siblings and to act like a responsible young adult. He is evacuated to the countryside with his siblings by train because of the air-raids of World War II. In the countryside, they stay at the old mansion of Professor Digory Kirke until the end of the war. When Lucy first stumbles on the wardrobe, Peter doesn’t believe her, thinking it is just her imagination until he and the other Pevensies enter the wardrobe themselves; “A jolly good hoax, Lu”. He later apologizes to Lucy for not believing her and is quite angry with Edmund for earlier denying Narnia’s existence; “Well, of all the poisonous little beasts”. This is caused by Edmund’s revelation of his deceit when, upon entering Narnia, he says; “I say…oughtn’t we to be bearing a bit more to the left, that is, if we are aiming for the lamp-post?”. Peter received his sword, Rhindon, and shield from Father Christmas during the journey to find Aslan and is later knighted “Sir Peter Wolf’s-Bane” by Aslan after he kills Maugrim the wolf, chief of the White Witch’s secret police, who was trying to kill Susan. This is Peter’s first battle. In the American editions of the books on which the 1979 animated film was based, Lewis changed the chief wolf’s name to Fenris Ulf after a figure from Norse Mythology. In those versions, Peter is given the epithet “Fenris-bane”. He is the head General of Aslan’s army.After the defeat of the White Witch Jadis, self-styled Queen of Narnia, and her evil allies, in the Battle of Beruna Ford, he is crowned by Aslan as His Majesty King Peter, High King of Narnia, Emperor of the Lone Islands, Lord of Cair Paravel, Knight of the Most Noble Order of the Lion. The ancient prophecy of two Sons of Adam and two Daughters of Eve coming to sit on the four thrones of Narnia at Cair Paravel has come to fruition. This marks the end of the hundred years of winter and the reign of the White Witch, and is the beginning of Narnia’s Golden Age. After the Pevensies arrive in the ruins of Cair Paravel, (in Prince Caspian) they find the castle’s treasure chamber, where Peter, Susan and Lucy find the gifts they were given by Father Christmas. Peter takes his sword, Rhindon, and his silver shield, and again serves as the leader of the group. When the children are forced to make a decision, Peter, as High King, has the final word. Buying time for Aslan to awaken the other Narnians and stall the war, Peter suggested that he would fight Miraz in a one on one duel. After the Pevensie children help defeat the Telmarines, Peter formally gives authority to Caspian to rule Narnia as king. Aslan gives Caspian the authority to rule “under Us and under the High King”. Peter later confided to Lucy and Edmund that he was told by Aslan that he and Susan will never return to Narnia, as they are now too old. The four children returned to their world, in which they were waiting for their train that will take them to their boarding schools.While not physically present in the book, it was mentioned that Peter was under the tutelage of Professor Kirke in preparation for exams.High King Peter around this time was leading a battle to drive away the giants from the Northern boundaries of the realm. His prowess from this fight was well known in Narnian history, as it was referenced in the other books. While mentioned several times, he never makes a real appearance. In the Last Battle, Peter has a minor role in the story, however he was the only one to directly address Tirian when the young king begged them to come to their aid.Peter and Edmund went to London to retrieve the magic rings that Professor Kirke buried in The Magician’s Nephew in the Ketterley’s yard dressed as workmen, hoping to use its power and allow Eustace and Jill to reach Narnia. Both boys were waiting for the others at the train platform when the accident happened. He is described by Tirian as having the face of a warrior. As Aslan brought about the final destruction of Narnia, Peter was asked by Aslan to close the door, which he then locked with a golden key, and was one of the many people admitted in Aslan’s country.

Queen Lucy-Lucy’s siblings, Peter, Susan, and Edmund, do not believe her about Narnia at first, but later they all find their way to Narnia. In the first story, The Lion, the Witch,a nd the Wardrobe, she is the first of the Pevensies to enter Narnia through a magical wardrobe in Professor Kirke’s old house, and sees Narnia in the One Hundred Year Winter, under the rule of Jadis the White Witch the evil self-styled Queen of Narnia. There she meets Mr. Tumnus the faun, and, later, the Beavers. She is given two gifts from Father Christmas: a magical Cordial that can heal almost any injury instantly, and a small daggar with which to defend herself “at great need”. In Cair Paravel, she is crowned as Her Majesty Queen Lucy the Valiant by Aslan to the throne as co-joint ruler of Narnia, thus marking the fulfilling of the ancient prophesy, and the end of the White Witch’s reign. Lucy travels to Narnia again with her three siblings in Prince Caspian. In that book, Lucy is the only one to see Aslan at first, and she has a terrible time convincing her brothers and sister as well as Trumpkin the dwarf that he had returned, echoing her trials early in the first book. Aslan tells her to try again, and says that she must follow him alone if they refuse to come with her. Lucy comments that Aslan has grown larger. He explains that he appears larger to her because she is older. While Susan travels with Mr. and Mrs. Pevensie to America and Peter studies with Professor Digory Kirke, Lucy, Edmund and their cousin Eustace are drawn into Narnia through a magical painting in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. This is very much Lucy’s book, written largely from her point of view. However, at the end Aslan firmly tells her she has become, like Susan, too old to experience the wonders of Narnia. In The Horse and His Boy, Queen Lucy, now a young woman, rides to the aid of Archenland. She is described by Prince Corin as being more like a tomboy, unlike her sister, Queen Susan, who is a “proper lady”. She helps King Lune to welcome Aravis to Anvard, and helps to get Aravis’s room and clothes ready. In The Last Battle, she plays a minor part as she returns to Narnia again with her brothers, High King Peter and King Edmund, along with Eustace Scrubb, Jill Pole, Polly Plummer, and Digory Kirke. There, she witnesses the destruction of Narnia and lives in the new Narnia created by Aslan. In the new Narnia, all the people and animals who lived in the previous Narnia during its existence return and join together to live in the new Narnia. Lucy also meets her old friend Mr. Tumnus, the Faun again, and Aslan tells her about a railway accident that occurs in England in which she, her brothers, Eustace, Jill, Polly and Digory died. The Pevensies apparently live in the new Narnia forever.

Queen Swanwhite-

Queen Swanwhite ruled the nation of Narnia. There is some confusion concerning when she reigned; a timeline provided by C.S. Lewis outside of the Chronicles of Narnia states that she lived sometime around 1502 (Narnian time). However, in The Last Battle we are told by Jewel the Unicorn that she lived before the time of the White Witch and the Great Winter. The White Witch reigned from approximately 900 to 1000 (Narnian Time). The succession information below is based on the timeline, rather than the information in the novels themselves.Swanwhite was – according again to Jewel the Unicorn- so beautiful that if her face were reflected in a pool the image of her face remained for a year and a day. She does not appear in any of the novels as a character, but is mentioned as a historical figure in The Last Battle. It is also interesting to note that Swanwhite is one of the few queens of Narnia mentioned, the others being consorts, the Pevensie sisters and the White Witch herself.

King Rilian-is the son of King Caspian and the grandson of Ramandu the star. Rilian appears in two of the seven books, The Silver Chair and The Last Battle.

When his mother is murdered he goes off in search of revenge and is captured by the Lady Of the Green Kurtle. He was bewitched so that he could not remember anything from before his imprisonment, which he was made to think was a rescue from some unspecified danger. Searchers after the lost prince disappeared into nowhere at an alarming rate until King Caspian eventually forbade anyone else to do so, leaving Eustace Scrubb and Jill Pole, summoned by Aslan, to find him.
