Annabella married Louis, the Count of Geneva, on December 14, 1447 in Scotland. They divorced 11 years later in 1458. It's unclear if there were any children from this marriage. She then married George Gordon, 2nd Earl of Huntly on 10 March 1459. They were divorced in 1471 after having several children.

According to Wikipedia:

Annabella and her second husband, the Earl of Huntly had issue:
Isabella (d. 1485), wife of William Hay, 3rd Earl of Erroll (d. 1507).
Alexander, 3rd Earl of Huntly (d. 1523)
She was thought also to have been mother to another four of his children, however this has not been proved nor disproved.

Lord Byron claimed descent from Princess Annabella through his mother, Catherine, daughter of George Gordon, 12th Lord of Gight. Byron wrote: "By her [Annabella] he [the 2nd Earl of Huntly] left four sons: the third, Sir William Gordon, I have the honour to claim as one of my progenitors." has no apparent problem listing most of Annabella's children.
