I thought the Tudor dynasty was originally from Wales. They ruled England for a pretty long time. How is this stereotype of the Welsh reconciled with that? Or is it a matter of "the Welsh schemed their way into controlling the country, and produced a bunch of overemotional, lazy, inferior kings and queens who did a shitty job of running the country?"
