memucan in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
One of the seven princes who "saw the king's face and sat first in the kingdom" (Esther 1:13-14); "wise men who knew the times and law and judgment." Ahasuerus accordingly consulted them, "what shall we do unto Vashti according to law?" Memucan as president of the council owing to his wisdom and age, or else as an obsequious courtier knowing his master's mind, gave his opinion first, that Vashti should be disgraced; and his counsel the king followed.
