  • n. Plural form of cardinalship.

  • The peculiar nature of the Roman Catholic Church rulers was a major factor: when a pope was elected, his family members and supporters could not know how long he might live and therefore how long their elevated status would bring them papal gifts in the form of cardinalships for their sons and other income sources.
