Edmund, second youngest of the siblings accidentally sides with the witch and becomes a traitor, which means he belongs to Jadis(an ancient law signed giving her all traitors). Aslan, true king of Narnia, makes a deal saying he will give his life in trade for Edmund's betrayal to be forgotten-- or the release of his title as a traitor. Thus, Aslan dies but those who are not guilty nad die at the Stone Table are allowed to be reborn.

Hannah If you like Narnia, you should check out the "King of the Trees" series, too. I've read all six books in the series. I hear the author is writing more. I think they are better than Narnia, but that's just my opinion. They are very well written.
