zooby: There is an opera in which a giant swan comes onstage

'Tis Lohengrin of Richard Wagner, and here begins the knight's swan song:

"My dear swan! Ah, This last sad jorney!" --->

King Ludwig II of Bavaria was a big Wagner fan.

Great links. And is that, then, the origin of the term "Swan Song"?

I reckon so.

It wasn't invented by Led Zeppelin.
