The Chronicles of Narnia Wiki

You may be looking for "Earth (disambiguation)".

Earth is the homeworld of the Pevensie children, Eustace Scrubb, Jill Pole, Digory Kirke, and Polly Plummer, and all of the other humans who visited Narnia as well as (originally) the entire human race. The only known species of high-intelligence on Earth are human beings. King Frank, the first king of Narnia, was originally an English cabman. Many of Narnia's creatures also inhabit Earth, such as lions, mice, horses, bears, and wolves, however, they do not have the same magical abilities as in Narnia.

In Narnia, Earth did not have a proper name. Narnians could not call it Earth, because it would then be confused with the "earth" of Narnia, i.e. the ground or even Underland. In fact, "Earthmen" were Narnian gnomes who live in the Narnian underworld of Bism (not inhabitants of the Planet Earth). Individual Narnians have called it, with varying degrees of confusion, "the land of Spare Oom," "that other place beyond the world's end," and perhaps most sensibly "your world" (spoken to one of the Seven Friends of Narnia).

Important locations

Most of the events described in the Chronicles that took place on Earth were centered in England. The United States of America is referred to briefly, and the presence of Nazi Germany is implied by a mention of the air raids on London.


London, England

England was the home of the Pevensies as well as the home of the other travelers. England is part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain (UK) and Northern Ireland. The capital of the UK is London, where the Pevensies, Digory and Polly lived.

Several places outside London itself had a prominent role in the Chronicles' events; Experiment House and Digory Kirke's House were among them.


Crucifixion of Christ

"I am [in your world]. But there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there."

Aslan was the Narnian name for Jesus Christ. Around 33 AD, Christ was arrested by his enemies, condemned to death, and crucified. Christianity holds that he died for the salvation of all who believe in him (see Galatians 3:28), and that after three days he rose again and conquered death. (In Narnia, Aslan endured a similar fate at the Stone Table to redeem Edmund Pevensie, who was to be executed as a traitor by the White Witch.)

After Jesus' crucifixion, Christianity spread rapidly and eventually became one of the dominant religions worldwide. C.S. Lewis was a renowned Christian apologist.

World War II

World War II, shortened WWII, was the one mentioned major event to occur on Earth during the lives of the Pevensies and the other travelers. It lasted from 1939 until May 1945.
This major event was predicted by Aslan to Digory and Polly.
