|“||What a disgrace... It's hard to believe the Dozels are of Crusader lineage. This all started because of Langobalt...||”|
(Japanese: ドズル Dozel) is one of the six noble houses of the Kingdom of Grannvale. The Dozel territory is situated near Grannvale's center, south-west of the capital Belhalla and north of Chalphy. It was founded in the year 649, shortly after the fall of the Lopt Empire, by Neir of the Twelve Crusaders alongside Grannvale itself and its other duchies; its ruling family are his descendants and possess his holy bloodline, permitting them to wield the holy axe Helswath. As with the other duchies, House Dozel commands their own elite squadron of knights: the Grau Ritter, axe-wielding knights.
Ever since the rule of Duke Langobalt, House Dozel was plagued by a grudge against House Chalphy, starting with Langobalt's virulent loathing of Chalphy's Duke Vylon; as a result of this, Dozel under Langobalt was part of the conspiracy led by Friege's Duke Reptor to seize rule of Grannvale for themselves by eliminating Prince Kurth. Though Langobalt succeeded in assasinating Kurth himself and framing Vylon for the crime, his intentions backfired as he was killed by Vylon's son Sigurd, leaving Duke Arvis of Velthomer the sole Grannvale power and forcing Langobalt's heirs to comply with him upon becoming Emperor of Grannvale.
In the aftermath of the Grannvale war on Isaach, rule of Isaach was entrusted to House Dozel, with Langobalt's son Danan appointed its king. While Isaach was little more than a servant state to Grannvale, it was still among the least affected areas by the rise of Grannvale's tyranny, as Danan's younger sons Johan and Johalva refused to follow through on the more heinous activities of the larger empire such as child hunts. House Dozel's hold on Isaach was eliminated with the uprising of Seliph of Chalphy in Tirnanog and his defeat of Danan, and with one of Danan's younger sons on his side, Danan's eldest son Burian - entrusted with the care of the Dozel territory itself - fell in the final confrontation between Seliph and the empire in Grannvale itself.

- "Larcei: At least, I was relieved that you never hurt any of the women or children. I wish we didn't have to fight...
Johalva: Yeah. Well, I was never into pushin' people around like my brothers. And I've had about all I can handle of the Loptyrians. People say they've been sacrificing children right here in Isaac. My father just lets them walk all over him. I've had it with them!" — Larcei and Johalva, Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War
