Found my first Pirate Lord in Persephone. Look for a skull symbol on the stellar map. Be prepared to take down a reasonably large entourage, too. Find 19 more and you are done.

From what I can tell, the only artificial way to generate Pirate Lords is to resolve outstanding events on stations. Pirates Lords are events (a station will be labelled as 'Pirate Lord Sighted'). For example, resolve Militia Embargos by taking down Siege Craft. Take down Korian Invaders to resolve Korian Invasions. Both appear as sword icons on the stellar map. Crime Waves can be resolved by destroying key ships surrounding the station. There are usually 5 events active in a system at any one time. It can take some time for a new event to invoke and bring the total up to 5.

Or you can wait for events like Famine and War to be resolved naturally by Relief and Treaty ships.

Bounties do seem to accelerate the appearance of Pirate Lords. My guess is that the more bounties you complete, the less criminal elements there are in a particular system, thereby attracting a Pirate Lord who is looking to take over the action.
