The White Stag in the animated feature.

The White Stag in the Disney film.

The White Stag was a male deer whose origins and whereabouts are steeped in mystery. According to legend, whoever caught the beast would have their wishes granted.

Well over a year after the Archenland Conflict, High King Peter, Queen Susan, King Edmund and Queen Lucy were told about the mythical beast by Mr.Tumnus. He said that it had "Once more appeared in his parts", indicating the Stag had been to Narnia before.

They hunted the stag in Lantern Waste, near the Lamp-post, in order for the empire to have its wishes granted. However, they were unable to catch it, and instead unintentionally returned to Earth through Digory Kirke's Wardrobe, through which they reverted into children, thus un-fulfilling their wishes.

Ultimately, this brought an end to Narnia's Golden Age, and began its Dark Age.


  • It's been theorized that the Stag was really Aslan in disguise, guiding them back to their world, as they had done all that they needed to do in Narnia.
  • The only other breed of white deer mentioned in Narnia were the White Reindeer that were used to pull the White Witch's sledge, but they had no magic and were most likely typical dumb beasts.
