Is he on the calendar of saints like his father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and son?

I know who he was.
If I am not mistaken, Dushan was the most powerful of all Serbian kings which automatically places him somewhat before the Kosovo battle lost to the Ottomans in 1389. 
Dushan's kingdom included most of the Balkans including all of former Yugoslavia, Albania, and much of modern Bulgaria, Romania, and even southern parts of Greece except perhaps for the Peloponessus.

Yep.  I believe I read somewhere that 3 Patriarchs (Serbian, Greek and Bulgarian) were present during his marriage. He dreamt of ruling over Byzantine Empire...

Of course he is a saint, look at his saintly halo!

anyway, serbian wikipedia says he is a saint. The only one of his dynasty to be named a saint "after his death"

oh... my...

so his father ect were all declared saints while living? :p

Strangely enough he is the only member of Nemanjic dynasty who was a ruler and has not been proclaimed a Saint.

Halos are deceiving in that it was the norm of depicting an emperor.
sorry I was just kidding about that :p


but the serbian wikipedia says this on him:

"Без обзира на то, Стефан Душан је једини владар из династије Немањића који није био проглашен за свеца после смрти."

Dear Serbs, please translate ;p I do not trust google translate.

"Anyway, Stefan Dusan is the only ruler coming from Nemanjic dynasty that hasn't been proclaimed as a saint after death"

To tell true, I don't know exactly why. Here is an article about it in Serbian: http://politikin-zabavnik.rs/pz/tekstovi/uzvisi-se but it's more like supposition. Generally, Nemanjic dynasty is called "holy" (includimng both, men and women) - "Sveta loza Nemanjica"
