But as they watched, the Knight spoke the words of the last sign to them, and they had no choice but to free him, for fear of muffing this sign like the first three. Upon being cut loose, the knight took his sword and destroyed the silver chair, before introducing himself to them as Prince Rilian of Narnia.

Rillian being attacked by The Lady of the Green Kirtle in serpent form. When the Queen arrived, she took some green powder, threw it on the hearth present there.

It had an enchanting smell. She then took a stringed instrument, and began to play it, speaking in very beautiful tones to them.

The Silver Chair

The children, the Prince and the Marsh-wiggle talked to her about the Overworld, mainly about the sun and Aslan, while trying to fight off the enchantment. Though the others were about to completely succumb to it, Puddleglum fought against it. This made the others' heads clear, and the witch-queen angry. She then turned into a poison-colored serpent, and attacked. Though it coiled around Rilian, they killed it, and when the Queen died, a chasm opened in the earth, leading to the fiery world of Bism.

The Earthmen, now disenchanted as well, jumped down into it, for it was their home. Soon the chasm was sealed. The three travelers escaped with Prince Rilian through a tunnel the Queen was having dug in order to conquer the land that lay above it. That land was Narnia, and Rilian was returned to the castle to see his father Caspian X before his death, and take his place as King of Narnia.

The Silver Chair

When Caspian died, Aslan appears to the children, and blows, but everything seemed to be blown away this time. After several threats, the youth finally begs the three to release him in the name of Aslan. Recognizing this as the fourth Sign, they hesitantly do so, believing that he could indeed be Prince Rilian. The young man immediately destroys the silver chair.

Free from enchantment, he thanks them and declares that he is the vanished Prince Rilian, kept underground by the Lady of the Green Kirtle as part of her plot to conquer Narnia. The Green Lady returns and tries to bewitch them all into forgetting who they are, but the barefoot Puddleglum stamps out the enchantress's magical fire and breaks her spell.

The enraged Lady transforms herself into a green serpent, and Rilian kills her with the help of Eustace and Puddleglum. The gnomes, who had also been magically enslaved by the Lady, are now freed by her death and joyfully return to their home even deeper in the earth, a land called Bism.

One of them shows Rilian's party a route to the surface, and Rilian returns to Cair Paravel as King Caspian is returning home.

Caspian is reunited with his long-lost son but dies moments later. Rilian is then declared King of Narnia.
