Then on the narratives of the kings after Solomon, we see that their mothers are mentioned:

{14:21} Now Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he had begun to reign. And he reigned for seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city that the Lord chose, out of all the tribes of Israel, so that he might place his name there. And the name of his mother was Naamah, an Ammonite.

{14:31} And Rehoboam slept with his fathers, and he was buried with them in the city of David. And his motherís name was Naamah, an Ammonite. And his son Abijam reigned in his place.


{15:1} Then, in the eighteenth year of the reign of Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, Abijam reigned over Judah.
{15:2} He reigned for three years in Jerusalem. The name of his mother was Maacah, the daughter of Abishalom.


{15:9} Then, in the twentieth year of Jeroboam, the king of Israel, Asa reigned as king of Judah.
{15:10} And he reigned for forty-one years in Jerusalem. The name of his mother was Maacah, the daughter of Abishalom.

{22:41} Yet truly, Jehoshaphat, the son of Asa, had begun to reign over Judah in the fourth year of Ahab, the king of Israel.
{22:42} He was thirty-five years old when he had begun to reign, and he reigned for twenty-five years in Jerusalem. The name of his mother was Azubah, the daughter of Shilhi.

[2 Kings]
{8:26} Ahaziah was twenty-two years old when he had begun to reign, and he reigned for one year in Jerusalem. The name of his mother was Athaliah, the daughter of Omri, the king of Israel.


And so on through the books of 1 and 2 Kings.

Was the mother of the King of kings important and has and an important position in the Kingdom of God? - Of course.

[Acts]
{1:13} And when they had entered into the cenacle, they ascended to the place where Peter and John, James and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew, James of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Jude of James, were staying.
{1:14} All these were persevering with one accord in prayer with the women, and with Mary, the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.

Note that, at Pentecost, the Apostles were in the cenacle "with the women", that is a group of women who were present there as well. But then wait, it says "and with Mary, the mother of Jesus" the name of the mother of our King is mentioned, noticed the difference? If Mary were not important, then her name would not have been mentioned and she would have stayed within the group of "the women". But she IS mentioned to point out the importance that she has in the Church of her Son.

The mother of the King of kings has a high place of honor in the Kingdom of Heaven, seated at His right hand:

[Psalm]
{44:8} You have loved justice and hated iniquity. Because of this, God, your God, has anointed you, before your co-heirs, with the oil of gladness.
{44:9} Myrrh and balsam and cinnamon perfume your garments, from the houses of ivory. From these, they have delighted you:
{44:10} the daughters of kings in your honor. The queen assisted at your right hand, in clothing of gold, encircled with diversity.
