Thawan Thamrongnawasawat (Thai: ถวัลย์ ธำรงนาวาสวัสดิ์, Chinese: 郑连淡,[1][2] alternative transcription Thawal Thamrong Navaswadhi, or "Thawal Thamrongnavasawat", short Thamrong), born Thawan Tharisawat (Thai: ถวัลย์ ธารีสวัสดิ์; 21 November 1901 – 3 December 1988), was the eighth Prime Minister of Thailand from 1946-1947. Before becoming a politician, he was a naval officer, holding the rank of rear admiral.

A career naval officer of Chinese ancestry, Thamrong was a leading member of the anti-Japanese Free Thai Movement resistance movement during World War II. He became Thailand's elected prime minister on 23 August 1946, replacing Khuang Abhaiwongse. However, he was removed from office by a military coup orchestrated by Field Marshal Plaek Phibunsongkhram on 8 November 1947. Abhaiwongse then assumed the post of prime minister.
