Abstract: In his thesis, Carles made the following conjecture: Every rigid Lie algebra is defined on the field $Q$. This was quite an interesting question because a positive answer would give a nice explanation of the fact that simple Lie algebras are defined over $Q$. The goal of this note is to provide a large number of examples of rigid but nonrational and nonreal Lie algebras.
