I quoted it from the book. She PLACED the throne there for him i.e made it.
Also in On the Origin of the World, she creates a shadow that vomits bile that becomes chaos and matter, all before Yaldabaoth is even made.
. Not that he is the only one but I can assure you that the demiurge can't create in any of the books. Maybe there is one exception, but just maybe.
He made his own minions from himself and that event comes later. Before that is nothing to rule and what he is ruling are the Archons and she didn't make them. A throne is s physical object that exists, not a later hierarchy.
Even your giant quote says He ASSUMED command... That means he was GIVEN command over a preexisting realm and planet. Then he copied them, not able to make non existent things just inferior copies.

Yeah I already did correct you with the texts verbatim, you are just not willing to be corrected.
Meanwhile I already know for a 100% fact that he is not a creator of anything. You have to rely on what you claim, that anyone who has read the texts knows what you think to strengthen your argument.
I have shown proof that Sophia placed the earth here, called metaphorically a throne.
Your suggested interpretation of that text's metaphor would be kingdom or empire.
The throne is from where one rules (earth).
A throne doesn't describe who one rules, you don't rule a throne (a chair).
A throne is where you rule. Any place a king sits could be called a throne. But not a being.
So the text you say is the authoritative one, and the others, all say what I am saying.
Your lone refuge is a misinterpretation of the metaphor throne, an inappropriate metaphor for a hierarchy of Archons. That is not a throne. Those are called SUBJECTS and he copied himself to make them so Sophia didn't make them.
If she didn't make them they can't be that throne.
