Lord, female equivalent Lady, was a title, often of nobility, that applied to certain individuals having power and authority over others. Sith styled themselves as Sith Lords or Dark Lords, and "Lord Vader" was the typical form of address by Imperial officers for Darth Vader.
General Grievous, the Supreme Commander of the Droid Army, was referred to as "My lord" by members of the Confederacy military, such as Asajj Ventress and TV-94. Another Separatist who possessed the title was Poggle the Lesser, archduke of the Geonosians.
