Asteroid 412, Elisabetha, was discovered on January 7, 1896 by Maximilian Wolf at Heidelberg, Germany. It has a period of 4 years, 217 days and a diameter of 90.96 kilometers(about 56 1/2 miles).

It may have been named after Wolf's mother, Elise Helwerth Wolf.

The meaning of Elizabetha seems to be: invisible protection (Damien Foor), to raise up or cast down; glory days (maybe gone forever).
