Named for the heroine of the Arthurian legends, the wife of King Arthur {see planet  (2597)}, but the lover of Lancelot {see planet  (2041)}. When this affair was made public, civil war developed between King Arthur and Lancelot. Lancelot rescued Guinevere from burning at the stake, but these events initiated the downfall of Arthur’s idyllic kingdom. (M 8064)

Following a suggestion by F. Pilcher, the name was proposed by E. Bowell, who found the key identification for this planet.


Discovered on 17-8-1928 in Heidelberg by Wolf, M. F.
