In Old French, ‘Comte des Cierges’ (pronounced Com des C’erge) translates to ‘Keeper of the Candles’. This was the title given to the servants of French noblemen, who were responsible for the heating and lighting of their residences. As the ‘Comte de Cierges’ became a more established role, the job evolved to encompass more duties and responsibilities. Inevitably, this led to them practically organising anything and everything that the noblemen required. Over time this title became abbreviated to ‘concierge’.
