Zevulun Ben Yaakov Avinu was born on 7 Tishrei 2200 and died in the year 2314 at the age of 114 (per the Sefer "The Shevatim" by Rabbi Moshe Polter)

114 equals "צדיק" minus "מים" equals "פרוזדור" minus "טרקלן". (Source: The Chosen: "From this we learn that the righteous man who removes himself from Torah also removes himself from the world-to-come!")
