In 1446, Margaret married Albert of Brandenburg, the future Albert III Achilles, Elector of Brandenburg, in Heilsbronn. Margaret died before he succeeded to the Electorate of Brandenburg, thus never served as Electress. Their marriage produced three sons and three daughters:
- Ursula (1450–1508)
- married in 1467 Duke Henry I of Münsterberg-Oels (1448-1498)
- Elisabeth (1451–1524)

- Margaret (1453–1509), abbess of the Poor Clares convent at Hof from 1476

Margaret died in Ansbach in 1457 shortly after her husband acquired the Margraviate of Brandenburg-Kulmbach.
