Ricardo Richardine, Jr.
Ricardo Richardine, Jr. (1931 - ) born Ricardo Deben in Bogota, Columbia, was the son of magician Ricardo Richardine, Sr. who took over the illusion show when his father retired in 1959.
He started working in his father's magic shows at the age of six.
After his father's retirement, he tried his hand as a flamenco dancer, but eventually started performing magic again. To avoid confusion with his father's name, he started to billed himself at DANTEL (Richardine Jr.). He also performed with his sister, Marga, The Princess of Nan King.
He was performing up until at least 1976 as reported by Frances Marshall in the Around Chicago column in the January 1976 Linking Ring (page 42).
