Nestor, the oldest and wisest of the Greek kings at Troy, lived to see three generations of heroes. A brave and strong warrior when young, in old age he was prized for his good counsel and his oratory. Homer tells us that his speech flowed more sweetly than honey. When a politician or statesman today is called a nestor, it is these qualities of wisdom, good counsel, and oratory that are emphasized.

(Greek mythology) a wise old counselor to the Greeks at Troy
In Greek mythology, Nestor of GerÃªnia (Greek: ÎÎÏƒÏ„Ï‰Ï) was the son of Neleus, the King of Pylos, and Chloris. He became king after Heracles killed Neleus and all of Nestor's brothers and sisters.
Nestor is a character from The Adventures of Tintin series of classic comic books drawn and written by HergÃ©. Before he was under the employment of Captain Haddock at Marlinspike Hall, he dutifully served as a butler for the Bird Brothers, the estate's previous owners. Haddock, however, respected Nestor for his loyalty, and refused to turn him in to the police when the Bird Brothers were arrested, eventually making him his own butler once he obtained Marlinspike Hall.
