Chinese term or phrase: 三代而后
"成吉思汗建立蒙古政权后,加紧了对金朝,西夏(在我国西北地区,由党项族建立的政权)及周围部族的军事扩张.据所载,他"灭国四十,平夏克金,有中原三分之二:兵行西海北海万里之外,昆仑月窟重译不致之区,皆马足之所蹒,如出入户闼焉."说他是"龙兴朔莫,践夏灭金,师行万里,三代而后,未尝有也."

Since Xia, Shang and Zhou dynasties
Explanation:
三代是指夏、商、周这三个朝代。“三代而后,未尝有也”的意思是说,自从夏、商、周这三个朝代以来,除了成吉思汗还没有别人能做出如此的壮举。人称诸葛亮是“两汉以来无双士、三代而后第一人”,是同样的意思。
