Question:

Which king promised God that if he would help him win a certain battle that he would sacrifice the first thing he saw, which turned out to be his daughter?

Answer:

You are referring to Jephthah, though he was a judge of Israel and not a king. The story is found in Judges 11. There is an article about the situation that should make what happened clearer. It is called "Jephthah's Daughter."
