Slaxl: NotSoFunkyPhantom: Slaxl: I like some of the old medieval titles people had, like "Groom of the Stool", or "Gentleman of the Bedchamber". I wish more survived to modern day.I think I know what "Gentleman of the Bedchamber" did, but what the heck was the "Groom of the Stool"? What was his job description? (I certainly hope the "stool" was the kind you sit on)Wikipedia can say it more eloquently than I."in charge of providing at all times adequate and seemly facilities for the monarch's natural bodily function of excretion or defecation, and indeed assisted in the facilitating of his bodily functions and in his cleansing or washing thereafter."I'm guessing because it was difficult to get in and out of those clothes.
