Has any person or group ever challenged the Xanathar in a turf war type scenario particularly for the Waterdeep sewers part of his holdings?

The leadership of the guild has switched several times; only the first beholder was actually named Xanathar. The others used it as a title.

Not what I asked, but thanks. I'm more looking for anything in the official lore where some other criminal organization or powerful individual being challenged one of the Xanathars over the turf that that the holder of the title has claimed in the sewers under Waterdeep.

It has happened before, thought more often than not by other beholders that want to claim the Xanathar name rather than by other criminal organizations.

I think it may have happened, that other organizations have tried or even succeeded in killing a Xanathar. We know the second Xanathar was killed by a lich (or presumed killed, if we go by 4e lore), but I don't think there is an example in the lore. It doesn't matter for the Xanathar's Guild, either, because regardless of how a Xanathar has died, there is always another beholder eager to claim the title and rebuild the guild.

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopher’s path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

Cool, that means I can get creative with this. Thanks, man.
