〜はもとより ： 〜はもちろん、〜は当然
My grammar notes also list 〜はもとより together with 〜はおろか。Although there are differences between them.〜はおろか is more strong/have a very strong emphasis than 〜はもとより and 〜はもちろん
はもとより has the meaning of "granted" so that 彼女は 英語 はもとより、フランス語も中国語も出来る would have the connotation of "She can handle both French and Chinese, let alone English."
Tweaked translations in line with bamboo4's comment.
My grammar copies list はもとより together with はもちろん and just mention that はもとより is のほうが改まった言い方
