The Zhou Dynasty lasted longer than any other dynasty in Chinese history. The dynasty legitimized their rule by using the "Mandate of Heaven" and claiming their rulers governed by divine right.
the dynastic cycle
A key concept in Confucianism that is reflected in the Mandate of Heaven is the idea that a king should be a balanced individual that connects all others. This idea also states that one must be able to properly govern themselves before governing others. This links closely with the Mandate of Heaven because emperors were given the right to rule based on an ability to govern fairly.
Term used in Ancient China; The Zhou dynasty (1045-256 b.c.) believed in ruling by the power of God. God told the people who was supposed to be the leaders and/or rulers of the Dynasty. An idea that justified Chinese dynasties
The zhou dynasty was chinas classic age (golden age) because they had many different accomplishments. They promoted the idea of the Mandate of Heaven (or devine right to rule). Mainly they were known as a classic age for inventing the first books of china and also silkmaking.
The imperial government of china was made up of different dynasty. The government was headed by an emperor, or sometimes an empress. Many Chinese rulers believed in the Mandate of Heaven. This idea meant that Heaven had chose the particular dynasty to rule. When something bad happened they thought that it was a sign that Heaven was displeased. The imperial dynasties lasted from 221 BC (B.C.E, Before common era) to 1644 AD. (C.E, Common era)
Sometimes Chinese rulers inherited the throne. At other times, they fought for the right to rule. In either instance, the Chinese believed that rulers came to power because it was their destiny, or fate. This idea was called the Mandate of Heaven. A mandate is a law, or an order.
The mandate of Heaven was the idea that the gods gave the power to rule to ancient Chinese governments. If the government became corrupt because of overtaxing, Natural disasters or the common people revolted because of mistreatment, they believed that the government had lost the mandate of heaven and then the commoners established a new government to rule. This was a reoccurring cycle.
they wanted to develop social classes that included farmers merchants aristocrats and the royal family
The dynastic cycle appears as follows: A new ruler unites China, founds a new dynasty, and gains the Mandate of Heaven. China, under the new dynasty, achieves prosperity. The population increases. Corruption becomes rampant in the imperial court, and the empire begins to enter decline and instability. A natural disaster wipes out farm land. The disaster normally would not have been a problem; however, together with the corruption and overpopulation it causes famine. The famine… Read More

This ideal is defined by the book and saying "Lex Rex" (The law is king) and subjects the "king" to the same rules as his people; it was originally introduced by Hammurabi and carried to the Romans (although this link was not discovered until well after its establishment years later). In Asian law it is known as "The Mandate of Heaven."
The Middle East has no corollary to the East Asian idea of "Mandate of Heaven". There are governments in the Middle East that are ruled according to religious precepts by clerics and are therefore called Theocracies, but theocracy is not unique to the Middle East. Much of Medieval Europe and Africa was theocratic.

During the Vedic age, class divisions came to reflect social and economic roles more than ethnic differences between Aryans and non-Aryans. As these changes occurred, they gave rise to a more complex system of castes, or social groups into which people are born and which they cannot change.
