A | 70 comments Irish Poet Alice Milligan appears to have multiple profiles with the last one listed not being hers, but containing one of her works. It seems these works list her name both with and without a middle initial:

Alice Letitia Milligan (1865 – 1953)

Alex | 2739 comments In the end, left with two profiles: Alice Milligan and Alice L. Milligan.

I kept both as I determined that she had originally published using both forms ("Hero Lays" and "Sons of the Sea Kings" with the former, "The Daughter of Donagh" and "Life of Theobald Wolfe Tone" with the latter). I have added a relevant note to the L profile, to avoid future merges.

Added bio to the no-initial author, as that seemed the most prevalent. Also added her to the books of the L. profile, so that all appear on that page (with relevant notes to avoid deletion of connection).
