A chamberlain was the head of a household. The word came to be applied primarily to the head of the king's household, a royal steward. This became a post on the privy chamber and was the person who served as spokesman for the king to parliament.

The head of the royal household was very powerful. In some cases, such a person was more powerful than the king. In the Frankish Kingdom, the position was called Mayor of the Palace, the title Charles Martel had when he dethroned the last Merovingian king and took control of the country. Similarly, the stewards of the kings of Scotland rose in power until, through royal marriage, they became the kings themselves.
