Perhaps you mean the king of Cheshbon?
Cheshbon was the capital city of Sichon, king of the Amorites ("Emorim"). The Jews conquered it.
See Numbers 21:21--27:
The verses indicate that the Amorites conquered land from the Moabites; some commentaries read these verses as saying that Cheshbon had always been Amorite ("let Sichon's city be built and established!"); others read it that Cheshbon was also part of the conquest ("let it become established as Sichon's city").
