Mythology of the constellation Camelopardalis

CAMELOPARDALIS, The Giraffe. is said to represent the Biblical camel which carried Rebecca to Isaac. However, historians are divided as to the inventor of this modern constellation. Some say that Dutchman Petrus Plancius first charted Camelopardalis in 1613, it later being included in Jakob Bartsch's book on the constellations, whilst others suggest that Bartsch, himself, invented the constellation in 1624.
