* Arsheesh says he discovered Shasta as an infant in the same year that the Tisroc came into power (ch. 1). Which, according to Ahoshta Tarkaan, was also the year that the White Witch’s winter ended (ch. 8). And, Lewis’s timeline sets The Horse and His Boy 14 years after The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Therefore, Cor and Corin are 14 years old.

** Shasta says, “You’re not grown up, I don’t believe you’re any older than I am. I don’t believe you’re as old.” (ch. 3)

*** Andrew says, “There’s no knowing how long I might live if I settled here. And that’s a big consideration when a fellow has turned sixty.” (ch. 9)
