Inthawichayanon (Thai: พระเจ้าอินทวิชยานนท์, Phra Chao Inthawichayanon, Thai pronunciation: [pʰráʔ.tɕâːw.ʔin.tʰa.wít.tɕʰa.jaː.non], deceased 1897) was the 7th King Ruler of Chiang Mai and Ruler of Lanna from 1870 until his death in 1897. His daughter, Princess Dara Rasmi of Chiang Mai become King Rama V's Princess Consort. During his reign the ties of the previously independent tributary state with the central government in Bangkok were intensified, culminating in the creation of the Monthon Phayap in 1892, by which Lanna was formally annexed.

He was concerned about the preservation of the mountain forests in the Thai highlands. Before he died he ordered that his remains be kept at Doi Luang, the highest mountain of the Thanon Thong Chai Range, which was renamed Doi Inthanon after his death.
