A courtier is a person who attends a royal court as a companion or adviser to the king or queen.

Background Edit

In castle Daventry they also appear to function as attendents similar (similar to a butler).

When Queen Maylie came down tithe plague, the fourth day of the queen's illness, the Dwarf came to the castle claiming he had a cure for the queen's illness. The castle courtiers ushered him into the Queen's chamber, where the king was in despair. But the dwarf proved to be a fraud... and stole one of the three magic treasures.

sometimes in the Great Hall, are large tables where citizens and courtiers ate at official dinners, and special holiday or festival feasts.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The courtiers are castle staff that are mentioned in the second version of the KQ1 manual, where they hold the same or similar position to the Attendents. Courtiers are also referenced in the King's Quest novels in particular one of Shallan Ballads in the The Floating Castle.
