Ealdwulf (Aldwulf,Aldulf, or Adulphus; died c. 815) was a medieval Bishop of Lichfield.

Ealdwulf was consecrated between 799 and 801 and died between 814 and 816.[1] The historian D. P. Kirby speculates that the last act of his predecessor, Hygeberht, was to consecrate Ealdwulf, before Hygeberht resigned his archbishopric of Lichfield.[2]
