King Henry VIII of England appointed four Grooms of the Stool, who were responsible for wiping his bottom during his reign. Each one was knighted.
These men were responsible for attending to the king's toilet needs, but they also supplied water, a washbowl, and a towel for the king.
ThEy even monitored his diet to predict his bathroom needs.

It could be worse. He beheaded two of his six wives. Both were for cheating on him although the real reason probably was they couldn't give him an heir. Jane Seymour died in childbirth. Plus by the time he died he was obese and had ulcers on legs that might have been from scurvy considering his diet. Thinking about that wiping his bottom is probably the lesser of the two evils
