King County was formed by the Oregon Territory legislature, on December 22, 1852.
The county was originally named after William Rufus King, vice president under President Pierce when the county was organized from the Washington Territory of Thurston County.
King County originally extended to the Olympic Peninsula. Kitsap County was later formed from it in 1857.
In 2005, resolutions were passed and signed into law by the governor of the state, which officially renamed the county after Martin Luther King Jr. The stated reason for the change was the revelation that "William Rufus DeVane King was a slaveowner and a 'gentle slave monger' according to John Quincy Adams".
King is the most populous county in Washington, and the 13th-most populous in the United States.
The county seat is Seattle,which is the state's largest city. Two-thirds of the population live in Seattle and its surrounding suburbs.
The highest point in the county is Mount Daniel at 7,959 feet above sea level.
