Meaning of Executioner

What is the Executioner:

As an executioner, the person in charge of executing an inmate is called, either applying the death penalty or applying corporal punishment imposed by justice.

The exercise of this office fell on a person specially in charge of this type of work. It is a profession linked above all to bygone times, when the death penalty was still in force in much of the world. Currently, however, some countries such as the United States and China maintain this type of punishment.
