The "Royal Dynasty of Magic" consists of a special elite group of magicians who have been individually designated by a predecessor. In the late 1800s, Alexander Herrmann, a leading magician in America, was the First magician of the dynasty. During the first decade of the 1900s, after Herrmann's death, Harry Kellar became America's leading magician.

Kellar chose Howard Thurston to be his successor and had Thurston travel with him during his last tour to proclaim it publicly. Kellar held a special ceremony to honor Thurston and at this event he presented Thurston with a black cape. This tradition became known as the passing of the "mantle" and continues today. Thurston later passed the "mantle" on to Dante, who was initially known better internationally than in America. It was not until 1939 after Dante opened his show on Broadway that he became known in the United States.

In 1954, Dante visited Lee Grabel and plans commenced for Dante to pass the succession of the "mantle" on to Lee Grabel. Although Dante died before the "mantle" was formally passed on to Lee Grabel, Dante's plans were documented in correspondence to do so. Thus, Lee Grabel carried on the uninterrupted line of thedynasty. Lee Grabel searched for his own successor for many years until finally naming Lance Burton as his proud heir by formerly passing the "mantle" to him on May 12, 1994
