It killed many people, men,women, and children, it was carried by rats I believe, the childrens rhyme "ring around the rosy, pocket full of posey ashes ashes we all fall down," that is about the plague, but it went "ring around the rosey, pocket full of posey, achoo achoo we all fall down" because the first symptoms were sneezes. I think that the affect on Europe as a whole was that fact that it killed millions of people and the had to restart life after that pretty much.

It had the most dramatic effect on Europe, and even had an effect on many other parts of the world, but it killed millions.
