"And to the Clear Northern Sky, I give you King Peter the Magnificent!"

Peter Pevensie was the eldest of the Pevensie children and ruled the Kingdom of Narnia during its Golden Age. As the eldest sibling, he was named High King over his brother and sisters. His Narnian titles included High King Peter the Magnificent, Emperor of the Lone Islands, Lord of Cair Paravel, Peter Wolfsbane, and Knight of the Most Noble Order of the Lion.

Peter was portrayed by William Moseley in all three films.


Early life[]

Throughout the Chronicles[]

"Rise up, Sir Peter Wolf's-Bane, Knight of Narnia."

Physical appearance[]




Peter is depicted as a warrior-king who sought to do the right thing at all times. He has an undying love for Aslan, and recognizes him as his leader, friend, and as a father figure. Aslan explained to Peter his responsibility as a born leader, and gave him the support of a father towards his son. Peter in turn respects all of Aslan's choices.


In The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (film), there is a rivalry between Peter and Caspian concerning leadership, this rivalry is absent in the novel.
