Abstract: In this paper we define a distinguished boundary for the complex crowns $\Xi \subseteq G_{\mathbb{C} } /K_{\mathbb{C} }$ of non-compact Riemannian symmetric spaces $G/K$. The basic result is that affine symmetric spaces of $G$ can appear as a component of this boundary if and only if they are non-compactly causal symmetric spaces.
