A chamberlain is an officer in charge of managing a household. In many societies there are ceremonial posts associated with the household of the sovereign.

Historically, many institutions and governments – monasteries, cathedrals and cities – also had the post of chamberlain, who usually had charge of finances. The Finance Director of the City of London is still called Chamberlain, while New York City had such a chamberlain, who managed city accounts, until the early 20th century.

The Golden have such a chamberlain who is an assistant to the First Merchant ( Sodoby). The post has been eliminated after the First Merchant started the change from monarchy to repuplic. It was replaced by a cabinet of elected ministers.

Some of the old clans on Nilfeheim and old families on Cambridge maintain such posts.
