In French: J'aurais mangé = I'd have eaten The auxiliary "avoir" caries Past Tense, Perfective Aspect, and Conditionnal Mode But this is the only only one I can think of since the other French examples I know carry only 2 of them with the third represented by a zero marking, like "J'aurai mangé" = "I'll have eaten" that carries future tense and perfect aspect and in which the indicative mood is implied but not marked - Max
