A ''Polemarch'' was a Military Title used in Ancient Greece (roughly 4th Century BC). It's translation is equal to that of ''Warlord''. Many Historians cite that the Title evolves from when a King could no longer lead His Army and appointed His most Senior and trusted Commander to do such. In Sparta, The Polemarch was a different Position and Responsibilities altogether. While a ''Military'' Commander, they also had Civil and Judicial Duties as well. In this usage, they were akin to a ''Provost Marshal''.
