Abstract: We classify all complex quadratic number fields that have all their algebraic integers expressible as a sum of three integer squares. These fields are $ F = {\mathbf{Q}}(\sqrt { - D} )$, $ D$ a positive square-free integer congruent to $ 3(\mod 8)$ and such that $ D$ does not admit a positive proper factorization $ D \equiv {d_1}{d_2}$ that satisfies simultaneously: $ {d_1} \equiv 5,7(\mod 8)$ and $ ({d_2}/{d_1}) = 1$.
