Rear Admiral Thawan Thamrongnawasawat (Thai: ถวัลย์ ธำรงนาวาสวัสดิ์, Chinese: 郑连淡, alternative transcription Thawal Thamrong Navaswadhi, short Thamrong) (November 21, 1901—December 3, 1988) was the 8th 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 Seri Thai resistance movement during World War II. He became Thailand's elected prime minister on August 23, 1946, replacing Khuang Abhaiwongse. However, he was removed from office by a military coup orchestrated by Field Marshal Plaek Pibulsonggram on November 8, 1947. Pibulsonggram then assumed the post of prime minister once more.
