The Danta State was founded in 1068. The state was ruled by the Hindu Barad (Parmar) dynasty of Danta and Sudasana, and the head of the erstwhile ruling family of Danta is regarded as the head of the Paramara clan of Rajputs.
The Parmars made Chandravati their capital following the Arab conquest of 1200 AD. After the battle against Allauddin Khilji, they migrated to Tarsang. From there they moved to Danta three hundred and eighty years ago. Danta's last ruler signed the accession to join the Indian Union on 6 November 1948.
The present head of the family is Mahipendra Singh, born 17 December 1948 in Bombay, married 6 March 1975 in Jaipur to HH Maharani Chandra Kumari of Karauli. The royal family of Danta now runs a Heritage homestay called "Bhavani Villa Heritage Homestay" close to Mount Abu in Rajasthan.
