A henchman is typically relatively unimportant in the organization, a minion, whose value lies primarily in their unquestioning loyalty to their leader. The term henchman is often used derisively even comically to refer to an individual of low status who lacks any moral compass of their own. The term henchman originally referred to one who attended a horse for his employer, that is, a horse groom. Hence, like constable and marshalalso originally stable staff, henchman became the title of a subordinate official in a royal court or noble household.
The word appears in the name of Hengestthe Saxon chieftain, and still survives in English in placenames and other names beginning with Hingst- or Hinx. It was often rendered as Henxman in medieval English. Young henchmen, in fact pages of honour or squiresrode or walked at the side of their master in processions and the like, and appear in the English royal household from the 14th century until Tudor Queen Elizabeth I abolished the royal henchmenknown also as the children of honour.
The word became obsolete for grooms in Lies - Henchman - Henchman from Robbie Basho - Visions Of The Country middle of the 17th century, but was retained in Scots as "personal attendant of a Highland chief".
It was revived in English by way of the novelist Sir Walter Scottwho took the word and its derivation, Lies - Henchman - Henchman to the New English Dictionaryfrom Edward Burt 's Interlude (Kountry Bumbin) - Skoota - Ngastyle from a Gentleman in the North of Scotlandtogether with its erroneous derivation from haunch.
The Lies - Henchman - Henchman is, in this sense, synonymous with gilliethe faithful personal follower of a Highland chieftain, the man who stands at his master's haunch, ready for any emergency. The modern sense of "obedient or unscrupulous follower" is first recordedprobably based on a misunderstanding of the word as used by Scott, and is often used to describe an out-and-out adherent or partisan, ready to do anything.
The phrase henchman is also used as a pejorative for any sort of political mastermind or to present others as such. Thus it was used for associates of President George W. Bush  e. President Bill Clinton. Members of the SSor any of Adolf Hitler 's staff, are often called "Hitler's Henchmen",  a phrase used as the title of a book by Guido Knopp and a television documentary.
