-—No, the wife of a king is the queen.—

Bathsheba, King David’s wife, the Queen of the House of David, bowed to the King.

David’s son, King Solomon, bowed to the same woman, Bathsheba, his mother. The Queen Mother sat at the King’s right hand.

It’s in your abridged Bible:

1 Kings 1:15-16

So Bathsheba went to see the aged king (David) in his room, where Abishag the Shunammite was attending him.

Bathsheba bowed low and knelt before the king.

1 Kings 2:19

When Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him for Adonijah, the king stood up to meet her, bowed down to her and sat down on his throne. He had a throne brought for the king’s mother, and she sat down at his right hand.

Jesus is the King of the eternal House of David.

Revelation 3:7

“To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These are the words
of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. ...

Mary is Jesus’ Mother, the Queen Mother of the eternal House of David.

Revelation 12:1

A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. ...

Good grief man. Bathsheba was queen by having been king David’s wife which made her queen. Isn’t that what I said in my post? The queen is queen by virtue of her being married to the king not by being his mother.

Catholics always like to trot out the name of Bathsheba as being queen during the reign of king Solomon but never mention king David’s mother Nitzevet who was never queen even though she was the mother of David. If it were true that the mother of the king was the queen Nitzevet would have been the queen in David’s kingdom..
