Proposed Canon

Warlord is a unit that has Leadership abilityErf-b1-p040aSame-site.PNGErf-b1-p084aSame-site.PNG. That special (or natural) ability allows Warlords to lead other units in combat and grant a bonus to units under their command.

Commanders

On some occasions terms Warlord and Commander are used interchangeably.Erf-b1-p040aSame-site.PNG

However, Commander is a more general term since Casters are Commanders tooErf-b1-p084aSame-site.PNG, but they do not have Leadership ability.

Origin

Infantry units can be promoted to warlord in the capital (although at a high cost)Erf-b1-p043aSame-site.PNG or popped.

Speculation

Chief Warlord is not a separate class, but is a subclass of Warlord. A Chief Warlord provides bonuses that other Warlords do not.

Ruler seems to be a separate class of Unit (Rulers grant units in their stack a bonusErf-b1-p115Same-site.PNG, but it is not clear whether that bonus comes from Leadership ability or as a result of some special rule).
