1044 Teutonia is an asteroid that was discovered by German astronomer Karl Wilhelm Reinmuth on May 10, 1924, and assigned a provisional designation was 1924 RO. It was named after the Teutonic people. It might be a member of the Vesta family
Images of the object made during 2007 were used to produce a light curve that gave a synodic period of 2.84 ± 0.04 h. However, a study made in 2006 gave a period of 3.153 ± 0.003, which can not yet be ruled out. The brightness of the object varied by 0.20 ± 0.03 in magnitude over the course of each rotation.
