 Gian Galeazzo Visconti, duca di Milano
Sui primi del 1379 Gian Galeazzo avrebbe dovuto ricevere a Porto Pisano la regina di Sicilia, Maria d'Aragona, ma Pietro IV, re d'Aragona, contrario a questo matrimonio, che avrebbe trasmesso i diritti sulla Sicilia ai Visconti, inviò una flotta che, affrontate le navi milanesi, le volse in fuga.
Contro di lui Gian Galeazzo non esitò allora a ricorrere alla violenza: il 6 maggio 1385, infatti, fece catturare, nei pressi di Porta Ticinese, Bernabò, facendosi subito dopo proclamare dal popolo signore di Milano.
Alle violente ingiurie di Francesco, Gian Galeazzo rispose organizzando contro di lui una nuova lega, in cui entrarono quasi tutti i signori del Veneto, oltre a Mantova e a Venezia.
