does anyone know the meaning of the Shakespearean word, Joithead i looked it up, but no dictionary has it [Solved]

a person whose brain is useless because of too much alcohol

The Shakespearean word is actually jolthead (with an L not an i), and it means dunce or blockhead.

Well, Im gonna give a stab at this. I dont know for sure, but it sounds like an insult. Like how we used to call people stupidhead when we were little. Im just guessing because thats what I thought when I saw the word. It seems like a synonym to idiot or something that implies a lack of brain power xD
