We also discussed the order of the tribes and if there are different orders, whether Shevet Levi is counted as one of the tribes, the berachos of Yaakov, individuals in Tanach wh personify their Shevet, the 10 tribes that broke away to form the Malchus Yisrael, if Shimon is lost (as Shimon's land was in the south in the midst of Yehuda), whether the Shevatim got along with each other, and much more.
