Cardinal, an English ecclesiastic, nephew of Nicholas Breakspear (pope Adrian IV), was probably a native of Hertfordshire. He was made a cardinal by that pope in December, 1155, and was cardinal priest of the following churches in Rome: Cosma and Damian, Crosses of Jerusalem, Prudentiana, and of Pastor. He was instrumental in making Alexander III pope with the suffrages of nineteen cardinals, against the antipope Victor IV. Boso died in 1180. See Fuller, Worthies of England (ed. Nuttall), 2, 42.
