Fad’ladeen’.
 
The great Nazir’, or chamberlain of Aurungze’bë’s harem, in Lalla Rookh.

        “He was a judge of everything—from the pencilling of a Circassian’s eyelids to the deepest questions of science and literature; from the mixture of a conserve of rose-leaves to the composition of an epic poem … all the cooks and poets of Delhi stood in awe of him.”—T. Moore.
