I think, as most views from Dragaera, that it depends on who you ask.
Orbly-speaking, it ended when Zerika brought the Orb back from the
Paths.  At least, that's when the Orb started functioning again and
allowing citizens to draw on it for spells, check the Orb-Watch, etc.

However, the Interregnum might not have "officially" ended until Zerika
took back the throne.  Again, I believe it depends on who is answering
the question.

'Course, maybe, in Zerika's mind, it didn't *really* end until Zerika was
able to sit down and enjoy a glass of Dead Bodies and Seaweed....
