Ah, eh Richard. And you a scholar and all. Surely you've seen longer titles than that.

How about

Epithalamium; Or a Wedding Song On the Supposed Marriage of the Supposed Prince of Wales, to the supposed Grandchild of the French King, the Supposed Son Of Louis the 13th, as it was with the consent of his holiness, (or rather his wickedness), the Pope of Rome, Solemnized From Paris to Purgatory the third of the Last Greek Calends 1689. To the Tune of, Lulla by baby, &c. Licensed and Entered According to Order.

From Pepys Ballads. Surprisingly enough I couldn't find it in Roud. Perhaps the Song Title box hadn't got room for him to key it all in. -:)
