Pillars of the Earth is the easiest to learn and teach as it's a fairly intuitive game. It's also a great looking game and I think would work well with newish players. It's still a step above being what I would call a gateway game though. Meaning it's a step up on games like Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne etc
Genoa is somewhat harder to learn and play for a newbie because you have to establish what to negotiate on and how much... and that's somewhat difficult for new gamers to get their head around. Other than that though... the game isn't that complex.
Maharaja: The Game of Palace Building in India (if that's indeed the game you are referring to)... has arguably the most complex gameplay although nothing severe but I would say slightly more than the other 2 games above.
Go for Pillars with new gamers if these are your only 3 choices.
