  • King Ferdinand and Gorbachev both brought significant change to their countries, so they were sat together.
  • Lenin and Ferdinand were both leaders of revolutions in their countries. Because they are sat together they can compare their ideas and plans.
  • Stalin and Lenin were both communist leaders of Russia, so they were sat together.
  • King Henry VIII and Stalin were both tyrannical leaders. This similar personality trait caused us to sit them next to each other.
  • Plato and Henry VIII were both westerners who brought revolutionary ideas to their nations.
  • Gorbachev could not be sat near Stalin or Lenin, as he abandoned the communist ideas they had set forth.
  • Ferdinand could not be sat near Henry VIII, as Ferdinand was a die-hard catholic, and Henry VIII created a new branch of Christianity.

food explanation
Food Explanation
  • Stalin’s diet included mostly pickles and meat. Many Russians ate meat. Gorbachev and Lenin are eating the same thing because all of the foods were traditional Russian meals. Gandhi’s doctor made him follow a strict diet of lots of dairy, wheat, and rice. This would explain why he is drinking milk and eating cheese along with wheat. Akbar’s diet consisted mostly of the same thing as Gandhi. He ate lots of wheat and rice as well. Plato’s favorite foods were fruits and fish. So at this meal he will be served salmon and a variety of berries. King Henry VIII loved to eat traditional England duck. To go along with that he was a huge fan of pie. King Ferdinand is eating Spanish soup and a Spanish omelet at dinner. These were also Spanish recipes enjoyed by many.
