Queen Noguk (?-1365), also known as Queen Indeok, was a Mongolian princess and later queen of Korea, who followed the Yuan Dynasty custom of marrying Goryeo princes into the family line. Her Mongolian name was Borjigin Budashiri (孛兒只斤 寶塔實里).

She was the queen of the reformist monarch, King Gongmin. Although she was a Mongolian princess, Queen Noguk always supported Goryeo and her husband. Despite the extremely close relationship between King Gongmin and she, they were childless. Queen Noguk became pregnant fifteen years after marriage, but died in 1365 from complications related to the childbirth. After her death, King Gongmin became indifferent to politics and entrusted a great task to the Buddhist monk, Pyeonjo, who was executed in 1371. King Gongmin was killed in his sleep by Hong Ryun (홍륜), Choe Man-saeng (최만생), and others in 1374.

Queen Noguk's memory lived on into the next dynasty, as according to the Annals of the Joseon Dynasty,.[1]

Queen Noguk was depicted by actresses Seo Ji-hye in the 2005 Korean MBC drama Shin Don, and Park Se-young in the 2012 Korean SBS drama Faith.
