The Dulo Clan (鐵勒) or the House of Dulo was the name of the ruling dynasty of the west division (Turgesh) of the Western Turkic Khaganate and subsequently the Bulgars.
This was the clan of Kubrat who founded Old Great Bulgaria, and his sons Batbayan, Kotrag, Kuber, Alcek and Asparuh the latter of which founded Danube Bulgaria. The Nominalia of the Bulgarian Khans claims that the Dulo clan descented from Avitohol, probably Attila the Hun.
Dulo Hill on Byers Peninsula, Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica is named after the Bulgarian ruling dynasty of Dulo.
