The Dulo Clan or the House of Dulo was the ruling dynasty of the Hunno-Bulgars,[1] of states in various parts of eastern Europe, including Magna Hungaria (until the 13th century), Patria Onoguria (from 460 CE), Old Great Bulgaria (c. 632 CE) and modern Bulgaria ( 681 CE).

Attila the Hun descended from the founding ancestor of the Dulo clan, a mighty "Maeotian" king.[2] The Nominalia of the Bulgarian Khans names this ancestor as Avitohol.[3] The clan was ruling dynasty of the eastern Bulgars, the Utrigur Huns.[4]

Kubrat, a member of the dynasty, founded Old Great Bulgaria, on the territory of modern Ukraine.[5] During the second half of the 7th century his sons split up the Bulgar family and spread over Europe, from the Volga to the shadow of Vesuvius:[6] Batbayan (Volga), Kotrag (Khazars), Kuber (Balkan Macedonia), Asparuh (Danube Bulgaria) and also Alcek (Italy).

Dulo Hill on Livingston Island, near Antarctica, is named after the Bulgarian ruling dynasty Dulo.[7]
