    boon companion

    Im Text heißt es, dass ein Musiker zum "boon companion" des Kalifen wurde.

    Wie könnte man "boon companion" übersetzen?
    Vielen Dank im Voraus!

    Suggestionständiger Begleiter (?)
    Vergleiche auch: Dictionary: boon
    Vielleicht eine Art Ehrentitel: "Treuer und Guter Begleiter des Kalifen"?
