The Cardinal (called Prime Minister) was used by Gabriel Maura in his 9x9 game Modern Chess, invented in 1968.

This page is dedicated to the Prime Minister (Cardinal, Archbishop, Centaur, Adjutant, Equerry, Hawk and Janus):

Please let me know of interesting postitions with the Cardinal in action so that I can post them on the Prime Minister's page.
