mrstater: (Caspian Dawn Treader)
So I'm working on another Caspian/Ramandu's Daughter fic (a sequel to Bright and Morning Star, or I might make it a continuation, I haven't decided yet), and I checked out Lewis's Narnian timeline because I wanted to know how long they were married before Rilian was born (FYI, it was 15 years, which confirms the idea I've always had that Rilian was a very long hoped-for child).

Anyway, I'm doing a bit of head-scratching because on the timeline it puts VotDT as spanning the years 2306-2307, but the marriage of Caspian/RD doesn't occur till 2310. Am I crazy, or does that contradict the book?

Only two more things need to be told. One is that Caspian and his men all came safely back to Ramandu's Island. And the three lords woke from their sleep. Caspian married Ramandu's daughter and they all reached Narnia in the end, and she became a great queen and the mother and grandmother of great kings.


I'd taken the above to mean that Caspian married RD before the return voyage to Narnia, pretty much immediately after VotDT. Is it reasonable to go with that and ignore the timeline as not being strictly canon?
