By comparing the predicts of a semi-analytic model for the evolution of a pulsar wind nebula inside a supernova remnant with the observed dynamical and radiative properties of PWN G54.1+0.3 we are able to constrain the properties of the progenitor supernova and the birth properties of the central neutron star. This has significant implications for both the progenitor star of this system and the magnetosphere of this pulsar.
