I often wonder, whether Mary knew that the followers of Jesus called her “virgin” and, if so, what would be the reaction of a married woman having at least one son.

I am not a person to make any serious comment over religion.

'Virgo' is a Latin word for girl. The Old Testament was not written in Latin.

It would seem that the word 'virgin' meaning an unmarried or chaste (as in not having sex) woman who was pious only originated around the year 1200AD

Queenship of Mary
August 22
Mary, the mother of Jesus, was identified with the title of "Queen" at least as early as the 13th century. Artists often depicted her as wearing a crown or being crowned as she was received into heaven. When Pope Pius XII solemnly defined the dogma of the Assumption of Mary in 1950, he stated that she was raised body and soul to heaven, "to shine resplendent as Queen at the right hand of her Son."
On October 11, 1954, during the Marian year that marked the centenary of the proclamation of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, Pope Pius XII established the feast of the Queenship of Mary on May 31. After the Second Vatican Council, the feast (classified as an obligatory memorial) was changed to August 22 so that it would follow the Feast of the Assumption on August 15.
