Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend it if you have a basic knowledge of world history throughout the time period. I was fortunate enough to have taken World History before I took Euro, so I had a solid background of the course material.
The highlights were getting to have a mock trial of Louis IVX because we got a break from the everyday routine of lectures and notes. Also, a lot good videos were on Youtube that summarized an era or an event, and most of them were funny, so watching them in class was always fun.

Advice for students:
Try and make the course interesting by finding something relatable or funny, that way you can remember something about them. There's a lot of names and dates so just try to remember them the best you can, find a good system that works for you.
