The Hon. Ngo′, Lord of Mik PC MP (Shinasthana: 密侯耦, mik-go-ngo′; Jun. 5, 1847 – Sep. 17, 1928) was a Themiclesian military officer and Liberal politician. He served as prime minister between 1910 and 1912, and again between 1915 and 1916.

During his first tenure, he focused on the reduction of the progressive income tax introduced by the Lord of Krungh. At the same time and in his second tenure, he heavily reformed the army and funded naval ships. His leadership in the Liberal Party paved the way for the first non-titled person to become prime minister, Goh Mjanh-krje, while the Consolidated Army today venerate him as the "Father of the Army".

Titles

The Hon. Ngo′, Lord of Mik MP PC, belongs to the Kep family of Dzi (齊汲氏). His father, ′Jip (悒; 1821 – 93), was the 10th Lord of Mik. In recognition of his efforts to reform the army between 1885 – 87, when he was Principal Secretary to the Board of War and effectively the most powerful army officer, the prime minister elevated him as Lord Ng′jang (香君) in 1886. He was elected member of Parliament between 1887 and 1890, acquiring the postnominal letters MP. In 1890, he was summoned to the House of Lords under a writ of acceleration to replace his ailing father, who died in 1893. He thereby inherited the title and sat as Lord of Mik. In 1892, he entered the ministry under Lord L′ong-mjen and briefly held the position of Secretary of State for War in 1893, acquiring the postnominal PC.
