Narnia years

Is there a way to know how many years have past in Narnia between the end of the Voyage of Dawn Treader and the Silver Chair?

Welcome, bstenberg.

I moved this to the Narnia forum.

Regarding your question, according to the Lewis manuscript reprinted in Walter Hooper's Past Watchful Dragons, the voyage takes place in Narnia years 2306-7, Prince Rilian disappears in 2345 and is rescued in 2356.
Rat! he found breath to whisper, shaking. Are you afraid?
Afraid? murmured the Rat, his eyes shining with unutterable love.
Afraid! Of Him? O, never, never! And yet -- and yet -- O, Mole, I am afraid!
Then the two animals, crouching to the earth, bowed their heads and did worship.

Try these two copies of Lewis's timeline (with a few rewrites by others I think, but the dates are Hooper/Lewis) ... istory.htm

Happy reading!
