Typically, the term refers to the highest (major) person of a household (domūs or domicile) staff, a head servant who acts on behalf of the owner of a large or significant residence. Similar terms include castellan, concierge, chamberlain, seneschal, mayor of the palace, maître d’hôtel, head butler, and steward.

Te term also refers, more informally, to someone who oversees the day-to-day responsibilities of a business enterprise.[1]

All of the above in this classic definition is true of this very special position.
