Abstract: Helioseismology has been, without a doubt, one of the greatest contributors to our understanding of the solar cycle. In particular, its results have been critical in the development of solar dynamo models, by providing modelers with detailed information about the internal, large scale flows of solar plasma. This review will give a historical overview of the evolution of our understanding of the solar cycle, placing special emphasis on advances driven by helioseismic results. We will discuss some of the outstanding modeling issues, and discuss how Helioseismology can help push our understanding forward during the next decade.
