The practice of standing when it is played is said to have originated with King George II, who, at the premiere, stood from his throne during this piece because he had a cramp in his leg.
If you have ever been to a wedding, you have heard this piece. In the opera Lohengrin, Elsa marries Lohengrin, and this is the music played as she proceeds in wedding dress to the chapel. It is now the standard repertoire for all weddings in the western world, and for that reason it has probably been heard at least once by absolutely everyone in the western world. The opera does not end happily, though. One of the rules Elsa must not break is asking Lohengrin his name and origins, which, of course, she does, right after the wedding.
Lohengrin immediately tells her that he is a knight of the Holy Grail and must now leave her. She dies of grief watching him float away, being towed by a swan. Well what did you expect in an opera? A happy ending? Specifically, the opening two measures, of only four notes.
Everyone in the civilized world has heard it, probably more than once. The story of how Beethoven came up with it is legendary and most likely not true.
