About Berthold I, count palatine in Swabia

Berthold I aka Erchanger. His wife was probably a daughter of Etichonen Erchanger (the Younger) († 864), Count of Alsace, but some sources say she was Gisela of the East Franks (* 840, † 891). Source:

"The Ahalolfings or Alaholfings were a noble family of Alemannia in the Early Middle Ages. The family rose in the Carolingian Empire to possess lands in not only Alemannia, but Bavaria, Franconia, and Italy. Their original power base was around the upper Neckar and Danube rivers.

"The Ahalolfings are divided into two groups, the older and the younger. It is not certain how the two groups are related. The older group descends from a Berthold who was the joint founder, with Hnabi, of Reichenau Abbey in 724. His most famous descendant was Cadolah, Duke of Friuli, who defended the Pannonian plains into Italy from the Avars." Wikipedia.

Er war eine wichtige Stütze seines Schwagers KARL und ARNULFS von Kär nten und war um 880 als Pfalzgraf bezeugt. Vorfahren sind für den Raum der Baar zu greifen: s ogenannte "Berchtholdsbaar".

Hatte durch seine erfolgreichen Kämpfe gegen den Markgrafen Burchard von Rätien einen nicht u nerheblichen Anteil an der Entstehung des schwäbischen Stammesherzogtums.
