A chamber It is a place for break or at accommodation . The concept may refer to a room or ambient in particular, or to the building that is used as lodging .
For example: "Thanks for dinner, now I'm going to retire to my room to rest", “Where will we find a room in this town? There is no one on the street and all shops are closed? ”, "The woman showed her disagreement with the room assigned to her".
Frequently, the notion is used in the plural to name the private dependencies of a castle , a palace or other similar construction that only the monarch can use: "The king, before retiring to his chambers, asked that no one bother him", "His majesty is resting in his rooms", “The princess requested that they serve her food in her rooms since she doesn't feel well”.
There are several expressions that are formed with the word room. He cutting room , to cite a case, is the residence that was granted to the servants of the monarch. The room board On the other hand, it was the entity that had the function of distributing and assigning the rooms used by the servitude of a palace .
In the same way, we cannot ignore historically what is known as the royalty of the room. Under this name is a tax that existed in the Middle Ages and that establishes that it was the obligation to assign a part of the house to be able to temporarily accommodate the entourage that accompanied a king, the military and even Court officials.
However, that tax was extended for a long time, since when Felipe II reached the throne and decided that Madrid was going to be the capital of the court he established it as such.
However, there is always the picaresque of the human being to face situations. Hence, what arose was called houses of malice, so called because they were built in such a way that it was avoided that the tax could be applied therein. Basically they were constructions that apparently only had one floor, when in fact they had more spaces, but these were hidden. Thus it came to believe that they were really small homes.
In the nineteenth century it was when the aforementioned tax that many houses had to have a more modest appearance ended. Thus, historians recognize that, for example, in the Barrio de las Letras in Madrid there were numerous homes that on their facade seemed to have only one floor when in fact, inside, it was not. Among them seems to be that of Lope de Vega himself.
Chamber Finally, it is the name of a Spanish band of rock . The group, formed in Logroño , is considered as one of the pioneers of the genre death metal in the country.
