    We prove that there are exactly 149 genus two curves C defined over ℚ such that there exists a nonconstant morphism π: X1(N) → C defined over ℚ and the jacobian of C is ℚ -isogenous to the abelian variety Af attached by Shimura to a newform f ∊ S2(Γ1(N)). We determine the corresponding newforms and present equations for all these curves. © 2002 American Mathematical Society.
