The Pastor's Wife Is a Cupbearer

The Pastor's Wife Is a Cupbearer

In ancient times, the king or queen was considered the most important figure in the realm. Servants were plentiful, but the most trusted and revered servants were the cupbearers. The cupbearer made sure that no harm would come to the king or queen by tasting all food and drink to ensure it was safe, as well as up to royal standards. If any food or beverage was poisoned, the cupbearer would also be poisoned or killed by the tainted item.
