In this paper, we first recall the definition of a family of root-finding algorithms known as König's algorithms. We establish some local and some global properties of those algorithms. We give a characterization of rational maps which arise as König's methods of polynomials with simple roots. We then estimate the number of non-repelling cycles König's methods of polynomials may have. We finally study the geometry of the Julia sets of König's methods of polynomials and produce pictures of parameter spaces for König's methods of cubic polynomials.
