Medieval Glossary


A king's chambers were where the king resided, and they were often a suite of rooms. This term could also refer to the meeting area of the king's councilors and eventually took on a sort of legal sense. For example, in England, the Star Chamber was a court of law. Today, the term 'chambers' will often bring a judge's office or offices to mind.
