The book "The Oral History of Modern Architecture" (1994) by John Peter has interviews by him of various leading architects of the 20th century. Frank Lloyd Wright says about his own heritage (in 1957):

"I'm Welsh and the Welsh would have a great feeling for the spirit of the East. The Welsh were a spiritual people. They came from King Arthur. The Round Table was one of their official institutions. They were the original Britons. When you speak of the British you speak of the Welsh. Some of them got stranded over there on the French coast, and they called them the Britons. Those are Welsh."

So there!
