(816) Juliana

Reference work entry

Discovered 1916 Feb. 8 by M. F. Wolf at Heidelberg.

Named presumably in honor of Queen Juliana (1909– ) of the Netherlands. T. Gehrels, in connection with his interpretation of the meaning of the name Wilhelmina (see planet  (392)) pointed out that it seems very consistent that Max Wolf named an asteroid after Queen Wilhelmina’s daughter, too.
