Doorm

.

An earl called “the Bull,” who tried to make Enid his handmaid; but, when she would neither eat, drink, nor array herself in bravery at his bidding, “he smote her on the cheek;” whereupon her lord and husband, Count Geraint, starting up, slew the “russet-bearded earl” in his own hall. (Tennyson Idylls of the King; Enid.)
