hate to be a lame-o, but this map is not a map of Narnia.
It’s actually a plan for an actual location in our world, Belvedere House Gardens that set up a Narnia theme in 2005 to promote the Walden Media film. [That would explain the paths or whatever those are.] Anyway, I don’t know if this is just me, but I keep seeing it around because some people (possibly) think it’s a map of Narnia? No.
Here's the official map from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005) [I saw it at the Narnia Exhibition by the way!],
and if that’s not close enough to the books for you, this one was made by Pauline Baynes, the official illustrator chosen by C.S. Lewis himself.
This is how Narnia and the surrounding countries appear in
reality (or, you know, the Narnian world).
First of all, Archenland is not in Narnia. It’s its own country, south of Narnia. South of the Lantern Waste, way south of Ettinsmoor, and south of everything else in this map. Actually, barely any landmark is in the right spot relative to the others….
Second, it’s called the Great EASTERN Ocean for a reason. It’s to the east of all the land (because, as we know, Narnia lies in a flat world).
And okay, honestly I could go on all day with problems, but again, the main point is that it’s not actually a map of Narnia.
Thank you for understanding. You’re all the best.
That was fun. I haven’t gotten to rant about Narnia in a long time. ♥
