Re: When did Cardassia become a military dictatorship?

Gul Madred does it indeed point it out to be during his lifetime, but it would seem Cardassians are potentially longer-lived than Humans, which could potentially make it match with the occupation of Bajor; as evidenced by Dukat's longevity in his prime, Garak being both old enough to be Dukat's rival but Zyal's lover (without the age difference raising eyebrows) and so forth.
It's never stated on-screen (IIRC), but I think we do have to assume Cardassians to have a long lifespan.

That, or the state of Cardassian leadership has merely been retconned for DS9.
