##### Abstract

We give equations for $13$ genus-$2$ curves over $\overline{ℚ}$, with models over $ℚ$, whose unpolarized Jacobians are isomorphic to the square of an elliptic curve with complex multiplication by a maximal order. If the generalized Riemann hypothesis is true, there are no further examples of such curves. More generally, we prove under the generalized Riemann hypothesis that there exist exactly $46$ genus-$2$ curves over $\overline{ℚ}$ with field of moduli $ℚ$ whose Jacobians are isomorphic to the square of an elliptic curve with complex multiplication by a maximal order.
