 Zhou Dynasty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Zhou Dynasty (Chinese: 周朝; Hanyu Pinyin: zhōu cháo; Wade-Giles: chou c'hao; 11th century BC to 256 BC) followed the Shang (Yin) Dynasty and preceded the Qin Dynasty in China.
In the Chinese historical tradition, the rulers of the Zhou displaced the Shang and legitimized their rule by invoking the Mandate of Heaven, the notion that the ruler (the "son of heaven") governed by divine right (granted by the Supreme God of Heaven) but that his dethronement would prove that he had lost the mandate.
In Western histories, the Zhou period is often described as feudal because the Zhou's early decentralized rule invites comparison with medieval rule in Europe.

 Chinese history:Zhou Dynasty (1046-256BC)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The Zhou dynasty had its capital at Hao, near the city of Xi'an,or Chang'an, as it was known in its heyday in the imperial period.
The Zhou dynasty lasted longer than any other, from 1027 to 221 B.C. It was philosophers of this period who first enunciated the doctrine of the "mandate of heaven" (tianming), the notion that the ruler (the "son of heaven") governed by divine right but that his dethronement would prove that he had lost the mandate.
At most, however, the early Zhou system was proto-feudal, being a more sophisticated version of earlier tribal organization, in which effective control depended more on familial ties than on feudal legal bonds.
