The Romulan ranks were descended from the ancient Vulcan ranking system which was also used by the Vulcan military until the mid-22nd century. They bore some resemblance to various Earth ranking systems. The Tal Shiar used a different ranking system, although they were used interchangeably with the military ranks.

Background information Edit
Given the rank of sublieutenant, there is presumably a lieutenant rank at some point in the Romulan military history. No Romulan has been referred to as a "Lieutenant" in Trek.
The script for TNG: "The Chase" refers to a "Romulan Captain," although this is not used on-screen. The existence of such a rank was (seemingly) discredited by Ensign DeSeve in TNG: "Face of the Enemy".
The ranks of centurion and uhlan are ancient Earth ranks (Roman and Polish respectively) not known to be used by any other Star Trek cultures. The reason for their use in the Romulan language or by the universal translator is unknown.
