A later genealogy (Nominalia of the Bulgarian Khans) claims that the Dulo clan is descended from Attila the Hun.

The Dulo clan name descends from the Dulo (Tiele (Tiele people).

'''Bulgaria''' , Bulgaria is Europe's 16th-largest country (List of European countries by area).
Organised prehistoric cultures began developing on Bulgarian lands during the Neolithic period. Its ancient history saw the presence of the Thracians and later the Greeks (Ancient Greece) and Romans (Roman Empire). The emergence of a unified Bulgarian state dates back to the establishment of the First Bulgarian Empire in 681 CE, which dominated most of the Balkans and functioned as a cultural hub for Slavs during the Middle Ages. With the downfall of the Second Bulgarian Empire in 1396, its territories came under Ottoman (Ottoman Empire) rule for nearly five centuries. The Russo-Turkish War (1877–78) led to the formation of the Third Bulgarian State. The following years saw several conflicts with its neighbours, which prompted Bulgaria to align with Germany in both world wars. In 1946 it became a single-party socialist state (People's Republic of Bulgaria) as part of the Soviet-led Eastern Bloc. In December 1989 (Revolutions of 1989) the ruling Communist Party (Bulgarian Communist Party) allowed multi-party (Multi-party system) elections, which subsequently led to Bulgaria's transition into a democracy and a market-based economy.
Bulgaria's population of 7.4 million people is predominantly urbanised and mainly concentrated in the administrative centres of its 28 provinces (Provinces of Bulgaria). Most commercial and cultural activities are centred on the capital and largest city, Sofia. The strongest sectors of the economy are heavy industry, power engineering, and agriculture, all of which rely on local natural resources.
The country's current political structure dates to the adoption of a democratic constitution in 1991. Bulgaria is a unitary (Unitary state) parliamentary republic with a high degree of political, administrative, and economic centralisation. It is a member of the European Union, NATO, and the Council of Europe; a founding state of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE); and has taken a seat at the UN Security Council (United Nations Security Council) three times.
