Uhlan was a relatively low-ranking grade in the Romulan Guard.

In 2368, Neral claimed he had never liked titles like proconsul since when he had been a "lowly uhlan". (TNG: "Unification II")

In the real world, an uhlan is a skirmish fighter armed with a lance, and later, pistols. The term is of central European origin. As a grade, uhlan is an enlisted rank in a fighting organization, below a sergeant or corporal. In comparison to naval ranking systems, this rank is marginally equivalent to the naval crewman ranks.
