Answer: If there were problems in the dynasty (war, famine, floods, drought) this was a sign that the ruler had lost the ​Mandate of Heaven ​or​ ​the right to rule. The Mandate of Heaven helped explain the Dynastic cycle. The Dynastic cycle shows how a leader gains power and can lose power.

This was a warning that the king had lost the Mandate of Heaven or the right to rule if there were problems in the dynasty (war, famine, floods, drought). The Heaven's Mandate helped clarify the Dynastic cycle. How a leader gains power and may lose power is seen in the Dynastic cycle.
