The founder of a chinese dynasty ,most of them had a privillege background examples, li yuan of the tnag dynasty was related to the sui dynasty emperor before th esui dynasty was extinguished so was zhao kuan ying who was a general and had came from an official family,as well as nurhachi aisin gioro of the qing dyansty who were military generals prior to moving up the social ladder before, becoming emperor ,as they had been officials or generals, the generation poem of their family would still be talking about keeping the family good name and prestige, the emperor or succeeding emperors may decide to compose a new family generation poem
