When Caspian's parents die, Miraz, Caspian's uncle, assumes the throne, to rule until Caspian grows old enough. But when Miraz has a son and heir of his own, he seeks Caspian's death. Caspian flees into the wilderness where he encounters a pair of Dwarfs and a talking Badger—creatures who inhabited Narnia long ago before Narnia was conquered by the Telmarines.
There are many of the Old Narnians living in hiding, and with Caspian on their side, they seek to overthrow Miraz and drive the Telmarines from Narnia. Caspian leads the Old Narnians into battle, but when Caspian's army suffers a series of setbacks, Caspian decides to blow the Horn of Queen Susan which he believes will bring help—possibly in the form of Aslan, the Great Lion, himself!
