 Berthe au Grand Pied.Bertram. 
E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
Bertolde [Bar-told].
Imperturbable as Bertolde, i.e. not to be taken by surprise, thrown off your guard, or disconcerted at anything. Bertolde is the hero of a little jeu d’esprit in Italian prose, J. Cesare Croce. He is a comedian by profession, whom nothing astonishes, and is as much at his ease with kings and queens as with persons of his own rank and vocation.   1
