Yes, of course, we have had instances of ex-popes in the past BUT none of them got the ‘royal’ deference that ex-pope Ratzinger is being afforded. [The title that he assumed ‘Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI‘ is incorrect and as such invalid. That is why I refuse to use it. ‘Benedict XVI‘, categorically and canonically, was his PAPAL NAME. When he ceased to be pope he lost that name.]
I am sure this is a first. Two popes at a cardinal creating consistory.
Historic. So please take note.
