    No one was on the throne, there was no king or queen. Oliver Cromwell was 'Lord Protector'.

    Re: On the throne

    I think Oliver Cromwell and the Puritans were ruling England at that time.I am not sure about that but I find this information from one of the literature reference that describing the state of comedy in England at that time. According the book, theaters were closed at that time and re-opened when king Charles II restored the English throne.
    Please, correct me If I am not right.

    Yes, that is more or less true, it was a bit more complicated than that, but you could say that that was the general condition of things at that time.
