The Story behind the wrap...
For 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 back 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.
Archenland Archenland, officially the Kingdom of Archenland, was a mountainous country situated south of Prince Caspian, later to become King Caspian X of Narnia, Lord of Cair Paravel and Emperor of The Lone Islands – also called "Caspian the Seafarer" and "Caspian the Navigator" — is the title character of the second book in the series, first introduced as the young nephew and heir of King Miraz of Narnia. Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia is set 1300 years after the rule of High King Peter and his siblings, when Old Narnians have been driven into hiding by Caspian's ancestors the Telmarines. Caspian is also a central character in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and appears briefly at the beginning and end of The Silver Chair.
