”Pooh-Bah” originated as a character in Gilbert & Sullivans 1885 opera “The Mikado”: his title was Lord-High-Everything Else—a self important person of high position and great influence.
The term “Pooh-Bah” has two almost exactly opposite meanings
1. A pompous self important official holding several offices at once and fulfilling none of them.
2. A leader, high official or important person
an important person, influential person, personage, a person whose actions & opinions strongly influence the course of events.
From what we can gather, the first interpretation was its original meaning in the early days and the second interpretation is the more recent understanding and definition.
