The Dulo Clan (鐵勒) or the House of Dulo was the ruling dynasty of the Huno-Bulgars[1] in Old Great Bulgaria and Magna Hungaria (Patria Onoguria). The founding ancestor of the Dulo clan was a mighty Maeotian Alan king from whom Attila the Hun descended.[2] The Nominalia of the Bulgarian Khans calls this ancestor Avitohol.[3] They were appointed to rule the western subjects (Hunno-Bulgars) .[4]

This was the clan of Kubrat who founded Old Great Bulgaria,[5] and his generals (styled "sons") Batbayan (Volga), Kotrag (Khazars), Kuber (Balkan Macedonia), Asparuh (Danube Bulgaria) and also Alcek (Italy).

Dulo Hill on Byers Peninsula, Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica is named after the Bulgarian ruling dynasty of Dulo.[6]
