The Zhou dynasty overthrew the last Shang king and justified it with the idea of the Mandate of Heaven. Later, the dynasty, weakening, split apart into many small states and the Spring and Autumn period (770-476 BC) began. Some states conquered other states, and at the end of the Spring and Autumn period there were seven kingdoms. This started the Warring States period (475-221 BC), which allowed the Qin to take control of China.
At the end of the Warring States period, the state of Qin took control of the other states and established an empire. The Qin ruled based on Legalism, which imposed harsh punishments for crimes. As a result, the people revolted after the first emperor's death, leading the short-lived Qin dynasty to its end and starting the Han dynasty.
