According to the listing, Wagner composed the piece, originally called "Treulich geführt," for his 1850 opera Lohengrin.

The song didn't really catch on until it was played as the processional at Victoria, Princess Royal's wedding to Prince Frederick William of Prussia in 1858.

Whoever buys it will have a sick wedding present — if they are willing to part with it.

Zimet told BuzzFeed Life that he's hoping that the buyer will be a "billionaire who wants ultimate wedding gift for his daughter."

You know what that means: Never say never, Lorde.
