Her father was a cruel and ruthless despot, and an implacable enemy of the Catholic Church. Anglesia became queen consort of Cyprus, wife of king Janus of Cyprus, sometime after January 1400. Janus was also a titular king of Jerusalem and Armenia. The marriage was annulled and they divorced between 1407 and 1409 without issue.

Her sister Valentina Visconti married to Peter II of Cyprus, a cousin of Janus.
