Agnes married a third time in Schwerin, on 12/13 February 1396 to the widowed former King Albert of Sweden, who at that time was Duke Albert III of Mecklenburg (b. c.1338 – d.1412). The couple had one son: Albert V (d.1423), who was Duke of Mecklenburg and Schwerin.

Agnes is not considered a Queen of Sweden, because Albert had definitely been deposed in Sweden before they were married, but in Mecklenburg she was regarded as titular queen, since Albert did not renounce his claims on Sweden until 1405.

Agnes died between 1 August 1430 and 22 December 1434 and was buried in Gadebusch.
King Albert worked to improve infrastructure and transportation. He encouraged the development of roads and waterways that would facilitate the movement of goods and people throughout the kingdom of Sweden.
