Забавно что слово warlord оказывается довольно новое:

The first appearance of the word "warlord" dates to 1856, when used by American philosopher and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson in a highly critical essay on the aristocracy in England, "Piracy and war gave place to trade, politics and letters; the war-lord to the law-lord; the privilege was kept, whilst the means of obtaining it were changed."

Забавно кстати, что русским аналогом вики предлагает уродливый неологизм "полевой командир", хотя на деле конечно куда ближе термин "военный вождь"
