Females and cubs do tend to spend their whole lives in the same pride, while males tend to roam around in “coalitions” throughout their lives.
Lion prides can have histories as dynamic (and dramatic) as those of the royal families of Medieval Europe. It’s true that females and young cubs stick around, forming the backbone of the pride, but male leadership tends to swap out whenever the male in charge gets too old or too weak and is bested by a young up-and-comer. Usually it’s only one or two males associated with a given pride, and they may spend time wandering around between prides before they can find one to take over. When more than one male is present in a pride (very rarely more than four), it’s called a “coalition” of males. Being a male in a pride is a contentious position.
