What does Daniel 2:42 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Daniel 2:42

And as the toes of the feet were part of iron and part of
clay
Or some of them of iron, and so were strong and powerful, as some of these kingdoms were; and some of clay, and so were weak and easily crushed, and did not stand long: so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken;
