(Also Chadalhoh, Chadalous, Chadelous, Kadalhoh, Chadolt; † after July 31, 896) from the family of the Alaholfinger was at least between 890 and 894 Count in Augstgau and Aargau , between the Upper Rhine and Aare in today's Switzerland . He was a confidante of the East Franconian King Arnulf of Carinthia and secured the Augstgau and Aargau against King Rudolf of Burgundy .

In the Albgau in the southern Black Forest he was also declared a count in 890, whereby he either shared this area with Count Adalbert the Illustrious or possibly only officiated there temporarily during an absence or temporary removal from office of Adalbert.
