There is a story that the hymn "God Saves the Queen" is derived from a song composed by nons of the cloister of L'Ecole des demoiselles de Saint-Cyr, after the successful surgery on anal fistulas of King Louis XIV, in 1686. The story is that Haendel heard it on his visit to France in 1714. Of course. Not all sources agree on this subject.
