The Zhou Dynasty includes two periods: Western Zhou (11th century BC to 771 BC) and Eastern Zhou (770 BC to 221 BC). It is divided because the Western Zhou Dynasty's capital Haojing (in present Xian of Shaanxi Province) lies to the west of the Eastern Zhou's capital Luoyi (present Luoyang in Henan Province).
With the royal line broken, the power of the Zhou court gradually diminished, and the fragmentation of the kingdom accelerated. From Ping Wang onwards, the Zhou kings ruled in name only, with true power lying in the hands of powerful nobles. Towards the end of the Zhou Dynasty, the nobles did not even bother to acknowledge the Ji family symbolically, rebelled and declared themselves to be kings. The dynasty was ended in 256 BC, before Qin Shi Huang's unification of China in 221 BC, when the last king of Zhou died and his sons did not proclaim the nominal titles of King of China. So it ended cause there were nomore members of the family line.
