Since the riddle is already answered I will try the king's riddle. The king's friend would have been married to the king's sister. So there were only 3 people there. No problem in having a pie each. They must have been very much overweight.

345 not counting the sacks since they're just bags. if you are counting sacks then its 2,403. You, the man, the wives, the cats, the sacks, and the kits. by the way I love riddles. here's one for you. A king dined with his sister His friend and his friend's wife. All of them were greedy beasts Who loved food more than life. At last three pies alone remained. There wasn't any knife. How did they all have equal shares, And save themselves from strife?
